Fish of the Forests: A documentary

The world's amphibians are in perpetual decline, and nobody is listening.  Working against the clock a biologist teams up with B.C.’s Indigenous Frog Clan in Canada’s boreal forest to document, study and fight  for the very existence of these creatures. 

We are in an amphibian apocalypse. 

Herpetologist Mark Thompson set out to establish a baseline study for his multi-year funded inquiry on habitat restoration and priority trails for amphibians in the Peace Region, British Columbia.  During this first year of study, he discovered some alarming results that affect not only amphibians, but humans alike.

Together with the Frog Clan, Mark addressed his findings with local government and industry officials.  Amphibians are in endless retreat, and, while their numbers are technically acceptable, they are functionally extinct because B.C. has lost a vast amount of its ecosystem, causing catastrophic consequences.  Mark requested a 2.5 kilometer untouched zone to do a proper study, but neither government nor forestry representatives could supply him with his request.  As a result, Mark and the Frog Clan are fighting to be heard in order to save the amphibian populations that are the canary in the coal mine for humanity. Fish of the Forests documents Mark’s team researching the amphibian populations and the journey he takes with the Frog Clan trying to save them.  

We are here to document this journey and amplify the voices of those fighting for amphibians future.
