    What does it take to save a species? Join us for the Vancouver premiere of Isabelle Groc and Mike McKinlay’s Toad People (Canada, 2017, 76 mins).

    Produced by local grassroots environmental organization, Wilderness Committee.

    Every summer, thousands of fingernail-sized Western toads cover a rural road in the community of Ryder Lake in Chilliwack, British Columbia.

    When the toadlets migrate from their breeding ground in the wetlands into the forest, few make it to the other side of the road. Western toads, like other amphibians in BC, are struggling because of habitat loss, climate change, and human interference.
