The Great Bear Rainforest
The Great Bear Rainforest is the largest coastal temperate rainforest on earth.
Kitasoo/Xai’xais territory is over 50% protected, which makes it what some call the crown jewel of The Great Bear Rainforest.
|The historic Great Bear Rainforest Agreement placed 9 million acres off limits to logging and millions of acres under strict forest management guidelines.
British Columbia's Great Bear Rainforest is part of the largest intact coastal temperate rainforest on Earth. This is a land of mist-shrouded valleys and glacier-cut fjords, old-growth forests, wildlife like rare spirit bears and rich salmon streams.
With 4.2 million acres monitored by Indigenous Guardians annually, 767 new, permanent jobs have been created in First Nations communities.
It is also home to First Nations people who have been linked to the rainforest since time immemorial.
