Kanopy Pick for April

Few things seem quite as magical as spotting a white-tailed deer in one of Toronto’s natural areas. In this month’s Kanopy pick, “The Secret Life of Whitetails,” filmmaker Gary W. Griffen gives an intimate introduction to this wonderful animal, its evolution, range, and resilience. A classic nature documentary made remarkable by behavioral footage accumulated over three years of filming. Run time: 57 minutes. (Note: May stream with introductory colour bars. These will pass in under a minute.)

Toronto Field Naturalists wishes to acknowledge this Land through which we walk. For thousands of years, the Land has been shared by the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, and the Anishinaabe. Toronto is situated on the Land within the Toronto Purchase, Treaty 13, the traditional and treaty Lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. This territory is also part of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum, a covenant agreement between Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Wendat peoples and allied nations to peaceably share the land and all its resources. Today, the Land is home to peoples of numerous nations. We are all grateful to have the opportunity to continue to care for and share the beauty of this Land.
