Children form 100-foot mountain caribou

Nearly 200 students, teachers and parents from Lindsay Park Elementary School in Kimberley, B.C., bent and stretched their bodies to from a 100-foot mountain caribou to help raise awareness for this critically endangered species. Fewer than 1600 mountain caribou remain in the world, almost all of which live in B.C.. The Purcell herd near Kimberley has dwindled to fewer than 20 animals in recent years.
