Selkirk Mountain Caribou Park Proposal

caribou The Selkirk Mountain Caribou Park Proposal protects endangered mountain caribou, primeval Inland Temperate Rainforest with trees up to 1,800 years old, hundreds of species of lichens, rare plants, core habitat for blue-listed grizzly bears, wolverines, and spawning grounds of the bull trout.

Inland Temperate Rainforest
inland While B.C.’s coastal rainforest is world-renowned for its splendour and diversity, its interior counterpart, the rare Inland Temperate Rainforest, remains relatively unknown, and is quickly disappearing.

Spirit Bear
spirit On British Columbia’s mid-coast lives one of the most rare and beautiful bears in the world — the Kermode, or spirit bear. Found nowhere else on earth, these white-coloured black bears are at risk from logging and habitat fragmentation.

Provincial Parks in Peril
falls User fees. Commercialization. Private Control. Major changes are in the works to ensure that profit-making, not ecological integrity, is top priority in the management of our provincial parks.

Watersheds
watershedB.C.’s domestic-use watersheds continue to be targeted for logging and road-building, despite dangers to ecosystems, personal property, water supplies, and even human life.

Boreal Forest
smallStretching in a continuous belt across northern Canada, the boreal forest plays a critical role in the global ecosystem. Threatened on all sides from logging, mining, oil and gas development and hydro-electric projects, the boreal forest is under siege.

Forest Watch
forest The Forest Watch program uses on-the-ground research and data to document the damage and danger caused by poor logging practices around the province, and to push for industry accountability. VWS director Craig Pettitt is the West Kootenay coordinator for Forest Watch.

Wildlife Conservation
wildlife British Columbia’s wildlife heritage is rich and diverse, and increasingly under threat from habitat loss due to industrial development, and from inappropriate hunting and poaching. VWS is involved in cougar, grizzly, black bear, mountain caribou, and wild horse conservation initiatives
