January 2016, one more win for the Great Bear Rainforest Of Canada.
After decades of fight, first nations and NGOs are celebrating a major win to protect the Great Bear Rainforest of large scale human activities. The Government of British Columbia announced that 85% of the region is now under a special management plan. The Heiltsuk Council (one of the first nation community) declared:
"We are grateful for a step down the right path. It is the first of many miles yet to walk.".
Exactly: one step at a time and we will see one day the Great Bear Rainforest fully protected from logging, tankers and trophee hunting. This coast, its people and its biodiversity deserve it.
