Time is running out to safeguard Vancouver Island’s highly endangered, globally rare old-growth rainforest. A new Sierra Club BC review shows logging of remaining old-growth rainforest on public and private lands on Vancouver Island is increasing.
On January 11, join us at Patagonia Vancouver to find out how you can help save BC's endangered rainforest. Come hear from Tyson Atleo, member of the Ahousaht First Nation and program lead for The Nature Conservancy about First Nation-led land use planning in Ahousaht territory, Clayoquot Sound. Take part in a conversation about the state of the forest and the solutions that are possible.
A new Sierra Club BC review showed that logging of remaining old-growth rainforest on public and private lands on Vancouver Island jumped to 10,700 hectares in 2016. This number is more than 10 per cent higher than the annual average in the 10-year period 2005–2015 and equivalent to more than 26 Stanley Parks.
Join us to talk about how we can make forestry in a changing climate work for communities, Indigenous peoples and ecosystems.
A coalition of BC environmentalists, unions, and business representatives is calling on the new BC government to take action to protect the province’s endangered old-growth forests and ensure a sustainable, value-added, second-growth forest industry.
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.
