Vancouver Island Ancient Forests

May 10, 2013

Clayoquot Sound (lime green bit near bottom left of right-hand map) is the only significant tall old growth forest remaining. Meanwhile export of raw (non value-added) logs has risen, while job numbers have fallen. This type of resource management based is based neither on science nor on long-term economics. It must change.
