Dear River Advocates,

Attached is a link to a great new 4 minute video from the BCIT Rivers Institute on the Heart of the Fraser initiative, one of Canada's most important conservation campaigns aimed at protecting one of the most productive stretches of river on Earth. This particular story focuses on a quest for knowledge - and the applied research now taking place aimed at quantifying the values of key off-channel habitats along this stretch - it features acclaimed river advocate and BCIT Rivers Institute Chair Emeritus, Mark Angelo, renowned river scientist Marvin Rosenau, and students from the BCIT Fish, Wildlife, Recreation Program. This video is part of the broader effort to increase public awareness about the importance of the Heart of the Fraser, located between the BC towns of Hope and Mission, - this is an area facing extensive development pressures in light of its close proximity to Greater Vancouver. Hope you enjoy it.

Excellent post Tyler!

I have never been down to this river but relate very well to the goals of this organization.

Thanks for sharing that, I had Mark as a prof while at BCIT and he is an inspiration, he really does lots of great work. Cool video and a very good message delivered in a positive manner.
