A few years ago, I was contacted by a group called Wildlife Media an intrepid group of filmmakers, conservationists & businesspeople headed up by Bear biologist Chris Morgan.
It so happened that they were beginning an epic nature film called "Beartrek" that they asked Bear McCreary to collaborate on musically.
They, in turn, asked Bear if he knew of any groups online that he thought would embrace their message & he referred the Battlestar Galactica Fan Club as one of those he thought to be likely.
I'm grateful that Bear pointed them in mine & your direction, because I know this is something that Battlestar Galactica fans would readily embrace.
Why do I say this?
Simply put, someone once mentioned to me that Battlestar Galactica when all is told is the end of a story.
It is when you boil it down to it's basics, humankind, the totality of the race of man pushed to the point of extinction.
This is mirrored in the subjects that concern Wildlife Media...whole species on our planet...Bears one of them, whose very existence rests in the balance.
Every animal family on this planet is vital, as well as every plant family... their continued and rapid extinction across the board is doing this world terrible damage and we never know when the final keystone might be pulled...and that will lead up to mankind's own doorstep.
So please consider supporting Wildlife Media in their efforts to conserve our world.
Chris & the rest of the crew there are very hard working, very dedicated and I think very wonderful people.
Chris will be hosting a three part series on PBS called Animal Homes
Please take a moment & take a look at this video shorts:
