This Living Salish Sea

How can ordinary people resist industrial development that causes both local harm and global climate change? This call to action examines the rising tide of awakening and powerful undercurrents of resistance as activists from coastal communities and First Nations engage in civil disobedience to confront multinational corporations forcing pipelines and tankers carrying fossil fuels through ecologically sensitive environments. Featuring extensive underwater cinematography filmed over four and a half years, this celebration of the beauty of the Salish Sea examines the living treasures of North America’s second largest “inland” sea, and how this diverse environment is threatened by unsustainable human activity.
