From the magnificent coastal cedars, hemlocks and spruce trees that rise as high as 30-story buildings, to the misty inland forests and the shy caribou that inhabit them, British Columbia is a global treasure, and we’re committed to keeping it wild.
From the magnificent coastal cedars that rise as high as a thirty-story building, to the misty inland forests and the shy caribou that inhabit them, British Columbia is a global treasure, and we’re committed to keeping it wild.
We were founded to protect the intact valleys of Clayoquot Sound on Vancouver Island, and we’ve continued to fight for the wild places – and animals – of British Columbia ever since.
Deep within the Great Bear Rainforest on BC’s coast, or its Inland Temperate Rainforest, you find unique resources. There are invaluable medicinal plants, rich runs of one of the world's largest wild salmon population, quirky creatures like the tailed frog and marbled murrelet, the mountain caribou, and extremely rare wildlife such as the Great Bear’s namesake, the white furred Spirit Bear.
With support from people like you, we have been able to dedicate our efforts to ensuring these elaborate ecosystems will live on for generations. We’ve protected 12.9 million acres (5.2 million hectares) gotten 400,000 hectares (nearly 1 million acres) in moratorium in the Sacred Headwaters, and have played a critical role in one of the best conservation models worldwide - the Great Bear Rainforest Agreement.
