British Columbia's Inland Rainforest

The Inland Temperate Rainforest and its Mountain Caribou are found nowhere else in the world but in the Interior Wetbelt of British Columbia, also known as the Inland Rainforest Region. Their fates, and those of many small species of plants and animals, are intertwined with the old-growth Interior Cedar-Hemlock forests that cloak the valley bottoms and slopes of rugged mountains. These forests are now yielding more newly discovered species than any other forest on Earth, due in part to research funded by the Valhalla Wilderness Society, and in part due to the independent efforts of scientists to document this threatened biodiversity before it is destroyed by clearcut logging.

Inland Rainforest Crucial for Caribou Habitat

Logging has already destroyed a large part of this ancient legacy. The Mountain Caribou is critically endangered. Recently, 19 environmental groups signed a joint submission to the Mountain Caribou recovery process asking for an end to logging all old-growth forest 140 years or older throughout the region. Please explore the links below to find out why. We hope you will enjoy the photographs of an extraordinary rainforest and its unique biodiverity.
