Burns Bog - A Road Runs Through It

Haut de la page

Located on the southern fringes of Vancouver, Burns Bog is one of the world's most precious ecosystems. Home to nearly 200 species of mammals and birds, it is also a vital stop for migrating waterfowl. For 5,000 years the bog has sheltered a diverse range of plant and animal life. Embedded in its deep layers of peat lies a record of all major local events, both natural and human. No one has fully explored the secrets it holds. But Burns Bog is faced with imminent destruction, as the needs of the area's mushrooming human population eat away at its edges. This video explores an urgent question: How do we define the worth of land and water, peat and plants, when there is a profit to be made?
