The Great Bear Rainforest region in British Columbia is one of the world’s richest and most intact coastal temperate rainforests and is home to exceptionally diverse ecosystems and species, including rare white “spirit bears”, Pacific salmon, wolves, and ancient forests.
Tides Canada is proud to partner with the National Observer for an in-depth series highlighting the stories, people, and history behind the unique Great Bear Rainforest conservation agreements. The (soon to be complete) agreements have been made possible by almost two decades of negotiation and collaboration between the provincial government, First Nations, conservation and philanthropic organizations, and forest companies.
Through the video, images, written stories and interviews in the series, Tides Canada hopes to raise awareness of the region’s importance, the significance of the agreements, and to foster integrated solutions for conservation and human well-being moving forward. Teck and Vancity are also supporters of the series.
The National Observer has full editorial control and responsibility to ensure stories meet its editorial standards.
We look forward to sharing the series content with you on our website and social media as they are published. The first article titled “The Great Bear Rainforest: Canada’s gift to the world” is live and ready to read on nationalobserver.com.
