Today is World Rivers Day

Here is a video to share  from Forest Ethics:

Hi Eldy,

This Sunday is World Rivers Day. It is a day to celebrate rivers: the arteries of life on our planet.

Shell threatens three of North America’s wild salmon rivers – the Skeena, Stikine, and Nass in British Columbia’s Sacred Headwaters – with plans to transform this ecosystem into a gas field. Over the last couple of weeks, you and more than 13,000 others have signed our letter telling British Columbia’s Premier Clark and Energy Minister Rich Coleman to ban fracking in the Sacred Headwaters for good. Thank you!

To recognize your efforts to save this incredible place and in celebration of World Rivers Day, we invite you to watch our new digital short, Sacred Headwaters: Paradise in Peril. This short video features interviews from the communities that would be hit hardest by Shell’s fracking.

Time is running out to save the pristine rivers and wild salmon of the Sacred Headwaters from Shell’s destructive plan. Please watch the video, and help us continue to spread the word. Thanks, and Happy World Rivers Day!

P.S. The deadline for lifting the Sacred Headwaters moratorium is December. In October, we’ll be running bus ads in Vancouver and Victoria telling the government to ban fracking for coalbed methane in the Sacred Headwaters for good. Help us deliver our message! A $50 gift buys one bus ad and big impact. Double your impact with a $100 donation and we’ll send you our “Don’t frack with our salmon” t-shirt. Please donate today.

We’ve got a new digital short you won’t want to miss! Check out Sacred Headwaters: Paradise in Peril now!
