Thanks to KUOW doing an interview with Ian McAllister, Director/Founder of BC nonprofit Pacific Wild, I discovered that a new documentary on the Great Bear Rainforest is having a run at the Pacific Science Center starting May 3rd.  Although playing at the IMAX theater, it's not in IMAX format, so not at IMAX prices.  Highly recommend this film; hopefully they'll expand on the current bizarre showtimes.


I discovered the work of Pacific Wild following a sailboat trip up thru BC's inside passage and Haida Gwaii in 2010.  Lobbied Seattle Town Hall to bring McAllister in for a lecture, and they made it a Canadian two-fer, also bringing in Andrew Nikiforuk, probably Canada's current best environmental jounalist.  His books on the Alberta Tar Sands and the beetle plague killing off North American forests are excellent.

What's fascinating about their iconic Kermode (aka "Spirit Bear") is that it's not an albino, but a black bear with recessive genetics.
