The Sacred Headwaters is the source of three of North America's most important salmon-bearing rivers, and key habitat for moose, bears, and caribou. And it was just named as one of British Columbia's Most Endangered Rivers for the second year in a row. The reason: Royal Dutch Shell plans to drill for coalbed methane in this pristine area.
Shell wants to use 'fracking' to extract natural gas. It's a process so risky that some residents in Alberta and Colorado have actually been able to light their tap water on fire after fracking projects contaminated nearby water tables.
Shell has already built three drilling wells. They plan to add over 4,000 more.
Tell Shell to get their gear out of the Sacred Headwaters for good.
