We support protection of the inland rainforest


Dear:

Shirley Bond, MLA Prince George-Valemount; Christy Clark, Premier; Steve Thompson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources; Mary Polak, Minister of Environment; John Horgan, Leader of the Opposition; Harry Bains, Forests Critic; Spencer Chandra-Herbert, Environment Critic; Andrew Weaver, MLA Oak Bay-Gordon Head


As you know, British Columbia’s inland temperate rainforest is globally unique[1][2][3][4]. The forces that shape it—a particular combination of humidity and continentality—are not found anywhere else on Earth[6]. Temperate rainforests like the one in our backyard represent less than 0.5% of the world’s forests[6].

We strongly believe it is necessary to enact landscape-scale conservation in the Northern Wetbelt—the northernmost extent of the inland temperate rainforest. [Map here: goo.gl/Mxh3hj]

According to estimates by former BC Ministry of Forests scientist Craig DeLong, 80-90% of the Northern Wetbelt landscape was naturally old growth[7]. Scientific studies recommend that, at a minimum, 50-55%[8][9][10] of the Northern Wetbelt be maintained as old-growth forest to sustain the animals, plants, and other life forms that live there. Similarly, a report on climate change in BC by Ministry of Forests scientist Jim Pojar advises maintaining at least 50% of the landscape as old-growth forests[11], while others argue that we should be conserving as much of our remaining natural areas as possible[12].

In 2012 the Province of BC’s Future Forest Ecosystems Science Council recommended a “long-term, place-based vision” for the Northern Wetbelt[13]. This followed a report by the BC Forest Practices Board calling for a suspension of logging plans in this area and the development of a conservation strategy[14]. Scientists and others have identified high-priority conservation areas and have proposed protected area networks for the inland temperate rainforest[15][16][17], and a government guidance plan written by a professional forester establishes important old growth areas for protection[18].

Old growth forests cannot be replaced once they’ve been logged[19]. According to our analysis, only 14% of the Northern Wetbelt is currently protected from logging (including the Ancient Forest Trail area). We also note that at least 20% of the proposed Ancient Forest Trail protected area has already been logged[20] and is therefore no longer “ancient forest.”

We, the undersigned individuals and organizations, strongly support the development of a conservation strategy for the Northern Wetbelt region that includes a network of protected areas. As your constituents, we urge you to consider the long-term interests of the Prince George-Valemount community and the intact forests we depend on.
