ACHIEVING LARGE-SCALE WILDLIFE CONSERVATION
Research • Education • Communities
February 1, 2016 — The world celebrated the final agreements to protect the Great Bear Rainforest.
Round River’s work in the Great Bear began in 1993 with the Big House Society of the Heiltsuk First Nation learning from them about their lands. Later in association with the Great Bear Rainforest campaign we produced a conservation plan identifying the lands most important to protect through the on-going negotiations. Round River applauds the long lasting commitment of the Great Bear Rainforest campaign and the Coastal First Nations to finalize this agreement. — Dennis Sizemore
