Check out my blog. (Recent Posts) I write about topics that I have researched since I started producing documentaries about Vancouver Island stories in 1995.
New Release “Wildlife Rescue in the Comox Valley” This 16 minute documentary chronicles the rescue and subsequent treatment and release of a Coopers Hawk that was found in distress on the side of the road. The Mountanaire Avian Rescue Society (MARS) has been doing this important work in the North Vancouver Island area since the 90’s.
Documentaries recently screened at on-line film festival “Culture Unplugged” “Saving the Tsolum River”, “Coal Fever Vancouver Island” and “Working and Living in the Forest” are great stories about people in the Comox Valley working to make the planet a better place. Check them out.
