Save Wolf Lake from Rob Nelson on Vimeo.

Four filmmakers, two canoes, six cameras and a passion for the environment came together to create this inspiring timelapse video aimed at preserving what remains of Ontario's ancient Red Pine forest from mining.

Wolf Lake is surrounded by the largest ancient red pine forest in the world - an endangered ecosystem that remains in only 1.2% of its former extent.
The government of Ontario promised protect the ancient forest, but 13 years later it is still open to destructive mining and mineral exploration.
