Save the Great Bear Rainforest

The Great Bear Rainforest is one of the last of its kind in the world. Sadly, pipelines & tankers aren't the only threats to it.

B.C. made headlines six years ago when it promised to save one of the last intact coastal temperate rainforests on the planet.

Today, logging is still allowed in 50% of the Great Bear Rainforest.

As long as only half of B.C.'s Great Bear Rainforest is protected, the whole forest is still at risk. Science is clear that at least 70% of the natural old-growth forest needs to be off-limits to logging to save it from disappearing forever. That's why we're calling on the provincial government to Take It Taller.

Your voice helped convince decision-makers to commit to saving the Great Bear Rainforest in 2006. Will you take action again and call on them to finish the job? Simply submit your name and email address to join a growing group of people who want the provincial government to live up to its commitment to protect the Great Bear Rainforest and support the First Nations communities that depend on it.

No matter which way you cut it, we need to protect more than half the forest from logging if we want to save the whole. We're almost there. Tell the provincial government to Take It Taller for one of the last old-growth forests of its kind, the Great Bear Rainforest.

      Must all of wildlife and it's natural habitat be judged by how much revenue it would bring and nothing for the future? How shortsighted.
