THE NEXT STEP IN PROTECTING BC’S FORESTS & BIODIVERSITY

SEND YOUR LETTER NOW

Over the last several months, we’ve campaigned with our allies for two important tools in the fight to save BC’s Old Growth forests:

#1. A commitment from BC’s NDP government to swiftly implement all 14 recommendations from the Old Growth Strategic Review which is rooted in participation from Indigenous groups and organizations. 

Commitment announced on June 1, 2021.

 

 

#2. An immediate moratorium on old growth logging in Fairy Creek watershed and Central Walbran areas until the Old Growth Strategic Review recommendations can be fully implemented.

Commitment announced on June 9, 2021.

 

Now, the hard work begins:

 

By holding the government accountable to these bold and critically important commitments. 

 

This is achieved through zealous and bold lobbying efforts with elected officials in Victoria and throughout BC. We’re on it! It’s what we do!

 

#1. Extend and mandate a provincial moratorium to cover all at risk old growth logging activities in British Columbia to allow time for a new strategy to be developed and implemented.

#2. Enact comprehensive legislation to preserve and enhance BC’s biodiversity including the protection, management and restoration of forests, grasslands, agricultural lands and wetlands leading to greater capacity to sequester and store vast amounts of carbon emissions.

#3. The B.C. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act should be foundational to all commitments.

 

By leveraging the influence of our ambassadors and partners as well as the traditional knowledge of Indigenous stakeholders, we’ll advocate for strong legislative policy to protect, manage and restore forests. This will improve biodiversity and mitigate our overall climate risk by increasing our forests’ capacity to sequester and store vast amounts of greenhouse gas emissions. 

Send an email to your elected representative in British Columbia, or send an email to our preidentified targets if you don't live in BC!
