The film takes us into the nearly impassable Darkwoods in Canada, with its ecosystems of old-growth valleys and alpine meadows – a wonderful part of British Columbia with unique flora and fauna. Until today, these remote mountain ranges are home to rare mountain caribou, endangered bats, grizzly bears, wolves, and unique birds.
Half a century ago, Duke Carl von Württemberg purchased this 55,000 hectare land in the Selkirk Mountains and named it after his native Black Forest: Darkwoods. Germans had sustainably managed the forest for four decades.
Today, Darkwoods is back in Canadian hands – the plan is to make it the country’s showcase region. We observe the unrivaled nature through the seasons of a year and get enchanted by this region of inestimable value for plenty of rare animals.
