Most people have childhood memories of tadpoles - but you've never seen them this up close and personal before!
I partnered with local videographer Maxwel Hohn to produce this minimentary. Over the past four years Maxwel has been videoing the incredible journey of the western toad tadpole. This year I wrote and edited the above film, telling their story, and Maxwel's as he works to photograph this tiny little animal.
Since release last week the video has been viewed over 40,000 times! It has been featured on Global TV, Chek News, in the Vancouver Sun, The Province, Victoria News, Comox Valley Record, Campbell River Mirror, on CBC Radio, and several other online diving websites.
The video also captures some grizzly water bug hunting and feeding - a world's first! Never before had this behaviour been witnessed or captured on film. It has excited on particular academic tadpole expert very excited, and we hope to explore these findings more in future projects.
I hope you enjoy the incredible journey of Maxwel, and the daily tadpole migration!
