The Rut *WINNER UWOL 27*
The Rut is a short film about my efforts to film the mountain caribou here in the south east corner of British Columbia at the time they mate. For the past 4 years I have tried with no luck, here's hoping this year will be different! This short film is part of a longer film about the plight of the mountain caribou. A subspecies of the woodland caribou (also threatened) their numbers have been declining steadily since European settlement but more rapidly in the last 2-3 decades. With numbers now totalling about 1400 animals, things are looking grim if they don't turn around soon.
