Rowing Where Oil Pipelines Should Never Exist

ForestEthics board member Michael Uehara is on his way to row 26 miles through coastal waters of British Columbia in an attempt to raise awareness about the dangers of a pipeline that energy giant Enbridge wants to install along the route.

Uehara obviously has an affinity for the region, as he speaks lovingly of it in the several blog posts currently up on ForestEthics website, 1, 2 & 3.

“I am back in the Great Bear,” says Uehara in his first blog post. “I come back here at least 10 times a year either to King Pacific or Hartley Bay. I sense the new eyes I have for this place. I wonder how I could have ever been jaded about such a beautiful place. From the vantage of 400 ft., down spiralling in the Goose float plane to our landing in Barnard Harbour, I watch a humpback breach “Pacific Life-commercial-style” seven times in a row!”

ForestEthics describes itself as a “nonprofit environmental organization with staff and board members in Canada and the United States” whose job it is to “protect Endangered Forests and wild places, wildlife, and human well-being.”

You can head on over to the ForestEthics website where you can help tell Enbridge that their pipelines are not welcome, as well as many other projects that ForestEthics is involved in.
