The boreal forest is the largest wilderness in the world, stretching from Maine to Alaska in the Americas in addition to being a prominent biome in Europe and Asia. This forest is home to a diverse array of wildlife, including moose, warblers, and wolves. Yet few of the forest’s species can capture the mystique of one of the most elusive animals in the Americas, the great gray owl.
We invite readers to view the Earth Day premiere of the short film Sentinels of the Boreal by Courier contributor and Sacred Heart student Tomas Koeck. This film was produced with funding from the School of Communication, Media & Arts, the College of Arts and Sciences, and Tamron USA. The film was also produced in association with the National Audubon Society and Friends of Sax-Zim Bog.
Join Tomas as he shows viewers what makes the boreal forest so special and worth fighting to preserve. To watch the film, click on the embedded video link below. To comment and like on YouTube, please click on the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRvPnMIfWp4.
