Great Bear Rainforest The Queen of the North was the pride of the BC Ferries fleet—right up until the night she sank. On March 22, 2006, during a routine run from Prince Rupert to Port Hardy, the ferry exited the narrow 45-mile Grenville Channel just past midnight. Then something went wrong. The officer at the helm, distracted by a conversation with another crew member, neglected to turn after leaving the channel, which points like a rifle barrel at the tip of Gil Island. At 12:20 a.m. the ferry's bow met the island's rock at a speed of 17.5 knots, ripping a hole in the hull. One hour and 20 minutes later, the Queen came to rest under 1,400 feet of water. Of the 101 people aboard, 99 survived, thanks largely to the citizens of nearby Hartley Bay, who put to sea in fishing boats in the middle of the rainy, windy night to rescue them. That leaves them skeptical about the pipeline and the tankers it would attract—about 220 a year. Neasloss has hardly known a time when the rain forest wasn't a battleground.

COOL 2.0 Clés de forêt Apprenez à identifier les arbres et les animaux forestiers Grâce à cette clé simplifiée de détermination proposée par L'Office national des forêts, le ministère du Développement durable et la fondation GoodPlanet, apprenez à identifier facilement les principales espèces forestières françaises. Cette application a pour but d’initier à la reconnaissance des arbres et des animaux et n’a pas une vocation encyclopédique, même si de nombreuses informations y sont présentées. Elle est entièrement embarquée. Il est préférable de la télécharger en wifi ou sur ordinateur. Mais une fois en forêt, pas besoin de réseau, toutes les fonctionnalités et tous les contenus sont accessibles en permanence. Indices :Un cheminement par étapes vous guidera jusqu’à la fiche de présentation de l’espèce que vous observez, ou dont vous observez les empreintes. Un moteur de recherche permet également de trouver une fiche à partir du nom de l'espèce. Le saviez-vous ?

Sound Uncovered DIY Sun Science on the App Store Poop Train You may not give a second thought (or backward glance) to what the toilet whisks away after you do your business. But we got wondering -- where would we wind up if we thought of flushing as the start, and not the end, of a journey? In this short, we head out to trace the trail of sludge...from Manhattan, to wherever poop leads us. This all started back when we were working on our Guts show, and author Frederick Kaufman told us about getting sucked in to the mystery of what happens to poop in New York City. Robert and producer Pat Walters decided to take Fred's advice and pay a visit to the North River Wastewater Treatment Plant... which turned out to be just the beginning of a surprisingly far-ranging quest. Want some more sewer fun? Read: As Robert and Pat report, some of that sewer sludge made it out into the ocean. Play: Try out our Poop Quiz:
