Who can resist an adorable baby turtle? This is a short teaser for a 15min educational film we’re producing about efforts to recover the endangered coastal population of the western painted turtle. You’ll see footage (never before captured on video) of two red-listed species in a fight for survival, a female western painted turtle eats the eggs of a Texada stickleback as he bravely defends his offspring. These turtles become familiar neighbours, not so different from you and me, as we literally immerse ourselves in the drama of their lives.

This is a short Teaser for a 15 min. educational film we’re producing about Texada Island’s endangered “Mr. Mom Fish”. Why “Mr. Mom Fish”? Because it’s the males who get all broody; making a nest, attracting a mate to deposit her eggs, then nurturing those eggs until they hatch! These tiny fish become familiar neighbours, not so different from you and me, as we literally immerse ourselves in the drama of their lives. In this teaser you’ll see footage (never before captured on video) of a Texada stickleback attacking a red-listed western painted turtle female who is eating the eggs he’s guarding.
This will be the first film on these fish. For more info contact Otter Be Good Productions at email@example.com

Dive right in to the underwater wilderness of Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada. Eyeball a floating bullfrog at water level or share a tear with a snapping turtle laying eggs. Exult in the exotic beauty of water lily flowers and float away on the calls of loons, frogs and whispering waters.

Chum salmon spawning in October. The female digs her nest (redd) and her big male mate fertilizes her eggs while another male zips in and squirts his milt too!

The frigid but clear northern Pacific waters of January reveal this hooded nudibranch clinging to eelgrass while it feeds. Spreading and contracting its hood and tentacles in a graceful dance this 4 inch long sea slug is backlit by the sun through its translucent body.
Palm Beach, near Powell River, British Columbia, Canada.
