Join us for a free community screening of the documentary Toad People.
Produced by the Wilderness Committee, Toad People tells the story of people like Steve Clegg and other families and communities across BC who are taking action to save the wildlife in their backyard, whether it’s toads, mountain caribou, or barn owls.
Their work is immense. Because despite having some of the most diverse wildlife in North America – including 1,900 species at risk – British Columbia is one of only two provinces in Canada with no endangered species law.
For the last six years, co-directors Mike McKinlay and Isabelle Groc have documented intensive community efforts to save species at risk in British Columbia and explored the urgent need for a BC endangered species law. Today, they bring those stories and the people behind them together in Toad People.
This community screening will be followed by discussion with filmmaker Isabelle Groc, amphibian biologist Aleesha Switzer, Joe Foy, Wilderness Committee's National Campaign Director and ethnobiologist Carrielynn Victor.
