With funding from Ministry of Environment, Environmental Stewardship Division (BC Parks) and from BC 150th initiative, EKOS Communications produced this short video (approx. 15 mins) which provides a historical overview of the development of British Columbias spectacular protected area system from its beginning in the creation of Strathcona Provincial Park in 1911 to the challenges of today. The video features interviews with former park employees and a long-time environmental advocates combined with historical photographs. To meet the upload restrictions of YouTube, it has been broken into two parts.
The video represents the first in a series. Subsequent videos will focus on specific parks and protected areas which illustrate key milestones or turning points in the evolution of the park system. Towards this end, new funding has been secured from the BC 150 - Heritage Legacy Fund to produce a second video centered on Strathcona Provincial Park.
