Great Bear Sea Underwater Footage Is Amazing (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

We know about the abundant species that dwell in the Great Bear Rainforest, but a new video from Pacific Wild shows there's plenty going on under the sea that surrounds it.

The non-profit organization that shoots live footage of B.C.'s vast coastal forest posted a spectacular video on Tuesday that shows an exotic world of jellyfish, seals and plant life.

The video concludes by referencing the Northern Gateway pipeline and saying, "Who will pay the real cost of an oil spill? We all will!"

If approved, Enbridge's Northern Gateway pipeline project would likely usher more tanker traffic to B.C.'s coast. An Oceans Initiative study from last September noted that oil spills could threaten humpback whales.

Pacific Wild released the video as it carries out an Indiegogo campaign raising funds for underwater and night vision cameras so that it can provide 24/7 coverage of the Great Bear Rainforest.

The campaign has raised $7,351 of the $28,000 it needs for the cameras with a week left to go.
