Many thanks to Tim and Thilo from the Band B.E.A.R for the October 5th concert in the forest they put on to support the Protection of the Dakota Bowl Bear Sanctuary.
There is a full length professionally edited video of the day in the works.
Below are uncut short videos of the day taken by supporters – more videos will be added soon.
Note: This Concert was put on in the Roberts Creek Headwaters Ancient Forest – Thanks to B.E.A.R. and others ELF recently received notice of the protection of this forest. So this is very good news. However, the Dakota Bowl Bear Sanctuary, that lies very close to this forest is now up for sale by BCTS and therefore is extremely threatened. Help us and take action today.

These Forests and the Bear Population Deserve Protection. Help Us Today!
On October 5th, a group of concerned citizens met off Sunshine Coast Hwy 101 (near Roberts Creek) to venture out on a trial into the nearby old-growth forests of Dakota Bowl. It was clear on the Coast, however when we turned down in the Bowl the rain clouds opened up.
After extensive logging in Dakota Bowl in the 1980’s and early 90’s, Ministry Forests ordered roads leading to the ‘Dakota Bowl Bear Sanctuary’ to be put ‘to bed’, suggesting that a decision was made at that time to leave this mid-elevation forest alone.
Why go back now and destroy the little that is left? Logging these old-growth forests would be a tragic loss to the Sunshine Coast’s forest ecology, bio-diversity values, recreational opportunities and large mammal populations.
