Experience the Fraser River Estuary in our new 360° video

Raincoast releases Experience the Fraser River Estuary, a 360° video lesson for students in Grades 9-12 - or any age!

We are delighted to release our first video lesson using 360°  film technology. These videos (accessible to all on our Youtube channel) provide students with an opportunity to use smartphones or tablets in the classroom, while immersing themselves in unique coastal habitats and learning about conservation in action. We have also prepared a lesson plan around this video.

Experience the Fraser River Estuary is the first video of a series of short educational films captured by One Island Media and sponsored by National Geographic. The video features Raincoast biologist and Wild Salmon Program Director, Misty MacDuffee, and Raincoast biologist and Lower Fraser Research and Restoration Coordinator, Dave Scott, as they conduct field work in the eelgrass meadows, mud flats and salt marsh of the Fraser Estuary. 

The first of 5 short videos in our Experience the Fraser River Estuary in 360° series.

The accompanying lesson plan (PDF) provides teachers with learning materials that can be incorporated into Environmental Science, Biology or Conservation related classes for students in grades 9-12. 

Help us protect KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest

Together with Pender Islands Conservancy, we are raising funds to purchase and permanently protect a 45 acre forested property on the edge of the Salish Sea. The KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest is located within the Coastal Douglas-fir (CDF) biogeoclimatic zone, one of the most biodiverse ecosystems in Canada. It is also among the most threatened in Canada. Protecting these forests is an investment in our collective future.

We’ve just announced a donation matching campaign to support the purchase and permanent protection of KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest. Every dollar donated before December 31, 2022 will be matched by anonymous donors. This is a chance for you to double your impact!
