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.

Raincoast’s in-house scientists, collaborating graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professors make us unique among conservation groups. We work with First Nations, academic institutions, government, and other NGOs to build support and inform decisions that protect aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the wildlife that depend on them. We conduct ethically applied, process-oriented, and hypothesis-driven research that has immediate and relevant utility for conservation deliberations and the collective body of scientific knowledge.

We investigate to understand coastal species and processes. We inform by bringing science to decision-makers and communities. We inspire action to protect wildlife and wildlife habitats.
