The Heart Of The Fraser


Fish and wildlife in the gravel reach of the Fraser River from Mission to Hope, British Columbia, are impacted by continuing industrial development and habitat loss in the floodplain that has continued since European settlement began. A glimpse of the struggles the heart of the Fraser has faced in the past and is facing today make clear that with a continuing lack of action and awareness the ecosystem will collapse and become a social, environmental and economic tragedy. The Heart of the Fraser is a powerful call for change that leaves viewers both informed and inspired.
