Under Thin Ice the award-winning documentary from divers Jill Heinerth and Mario Cyr received a second award from the Wildlife Conservation Film. The first award won by this film was from the Canadian Cinematographers Society in the best cinematography category award.

Jill Heinerth and Mario Cyr, tell us in Under Thin Ice about their dangerous expedition to the Canadian Arctic. Arctic and marine animals were not in their natural habitat. The Arctic is very rapidly warming, and Jill and Mario describe what is causing the rapid melting of the Arctic ice that is producing climate change. But Jill and Mario brave the elements thanks to their Inuit guides and manage to film belugas, narwhals and underwater algae for Under Thin Ice.

More people have walked on the moon, than have been to some of the places that Jill’s exploration has taken her right here on the earth. From the most dangerous technical dives deep inside underwater caves, to searching for never before seen ecosystems inside giant Antarctic icebergs, to the lawless desert border area between Egypt and Libya while a civil war raged around her, Jill’s curiosity and passion about our watery planet is the driving force in her life. Jill’s accolades include induction into the Explorer’s Club and the inaugural class of the Women Diver’s Hall of Fame. She received the Wyland ICON Award, an honor she shares with several of her underwater heroes including Jacques Cousteau, Robert Ballard and Dr. Sylvia Earle. She was named a “Living Legend” by Sport Diver Magazine and selected as Scuba Diving Magazine’s “Sea Hero of the Year 2012.” In recognition of her lifetime achievement, Jill was awarded the inaugural Sir Christopher Ondaatje Medal for Exploration. Established by the Royal Canadian Geographical Society in 2013, the medal recognizes singular achievements and the pursuit of excellence by an outstanding Canadian explorer.
