Social Significance

While new federal legislation attempts to eliminate forest protections, public involvement, and accountability of timber subsidies, the film will support the educational and promotional efforts of individuals and organizations making a difference in habitat protect on a local and national level.

A coalition of Conservation organizations are participating in and/or benefiting from this project. They include: Nature Conservancy, Friends of the Boundary Waters and Minnesota Parks and Trails. As the film portrays, these organizations, supported by researchers, sponsors and their members, often intervene when development and logging endanger a species and its forest habitat.

 


Synopsis

When a friendly black bear and it's old growth forest habitat are targeted, a family comes together to protect the local wilderness and help change public policy.

Inspired by a true story and an actual account of conservation at Bearhead Lake, HABITAT portrays the universal struggle to protect wildlife and wilderness areas.

MISSION

To further educate and inspire the public about black bears and Forest habitat.
