The Sacred Headwaters is the source of three of North America's most important salmon-bearing rivers, and critical habitat for moose, bears, and caribou. And this year it was named British Columbia's Most Endangered River. 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 drilled three wells. They plan to add over 4,000 more.
Tell Shell to get out of the Sacred Headwaters for good.
