Save the Spirit Bear Coast

Could this be the end of the Spirit Bear?
Spirit Bear
A pipeline carrying the world's dirtiest oil could devastate the rainforest home of the Spirit Bear with a single spill. Please watch this 75-second video -- narrated by actor and NRDC Member Kevin Bacon -- and then take action today to save some of the world's very last Spirit Bears.

Dear Anne,
I'm writing today to share a powerful video of the endangered Spirit Bear and its coastal rainforest home.

View the video now.

In it, NRDC Member Kevin Bacon describes what we stand to lose if energy giant Enbridge is allowed to transport tar sands oil through the land of the Spirit Bear.

This spectacular rainforest, which spans the coast of Canada's British Columbia, is one of our continent's last and greatest wild places -- home to wolves, bears and abundant marine mammal populations. Its world-class salmon runs have sustained the native people of more than 70 First Nations for thousands of years.

Please watch the video. Then tell Enbridge that you are appalled at its plan for the Northern Gateway tar sands pipeline that would endanger the entire Spirit Bear Coast.

Enbridge's track record is frightening. Its pipelines have produced more than 700 spills in the last ten years alone. Just last year, an Enbridge pipeline in Michigan ruptured, contaminating the Kalamazoo River and the nearby community of Battle Creek with nearly one million gallons of tar sands oil -- arguably the worst environmental disaster in the history of the Midwest.

Just one failure of the Northern Gateway pipeline along the Spirit Bear Coast could destroy one of our continent's last great ecosystems and wipe out the First Nations' way of life forever.

As if that isn't enough, when that oil reaches the Spirit Bear Coast, it will be loaded onto supertankers that will have to navigate a channel six times narrower than the passage that sank the Exxon Valdez!

Once you view this video, you'll understand exactly why a tanker spill would be so devastating to this unique and irreplaceable wilderness.

Please view our video of the Spirit Bear Coast. Then make your voice heard right away.

Tell Enbridge to prevent this disaster-in-the-making by withdrawing its application for the Northern Gateway tar sands pipeline -- before the Spirit Bear Coast is despoiled forever.
