It’s summer, and that means a lot of travel for families and communities. Have you considered buying carbon credits to offset some of your emissions? As an alternative, consider supporting Sierra Club BC’s work toward lasting protection of Vancouver Island’s carbon-rich endangered old-growth rainforest.

Record-breaking wildfires and heat waves are a reminder that we have little time to save nature, phase out fossil fuels and leap to a low-carbon economy, all at the same time. This ongoing state of emergency is a reminder that our planet is changing rapidly - and that our governments have to act like they mean it, to save our world as we know it.

Most of us have heard about how rainforests are in trouble and the rapid rate at which we are losing these spectacular ecosystems, along with the incredible diversity of species that depend on them. Close to home, very few know that the remaining old-growth forest on Vancouver Island is disappearing faster than natural tropical rainforests.

It's official—the BC election period has begun. From now until Election Day, the rules make it difficult for Sierra Club BC to draw attention to issues you care about like the Site C dam, Kinder Morgan tankers and protecting old-growth forests. That’s why we need your help more than ever.

As many of you know, by the time you read this note I will no longer be Executive Director. I will remain involved in the conservation movement as long as I am able – putting my energy toward defending nature, moving off a carbon-based economy and reminding people that their health is directly linked to a healthy environment. I thank you for your confidence in Sierra Club BC, and please continue to support the good work we do.

Based upon a process initiated by Sierra Club BC, UNESCO visited the Peace River Valley to investigate how the Site C dam endangers Wood Buffalo National Park. The newly released report strongly criticizes Canada for failing to protect its largest World Heritage Site. This report demonstrates the Trudeau government should never have allowed any approvals for the Site C megadam in the first place.

Completing the World’s First International Peace Park
The Flathead Valley is unmatched in North America for the variety and density of carnivores and its extraordinary diversity of plants and animals. It remains one of the last wild river basins in southern Canada. However, there are no legislated wildlife sanctuaries in the Southern Rockies.
