“The Great Bear Rainforest is a global treasure. All British Columbians have a stake in protecting it.” – Premier Christy Clark.
In February 2016, the Government of B.C., First Nations, environmental groups, and forest industry representatives announced the final decision on how the Great Bear Rainforest would be managed now and into the future. The approach is ecosystem-based management, EBM, and is based in science as well as traditional, local knowledge. EBM provides a big picture view of how people interact with their environment, how people’s needs are met while co-existing with plants, animals, seasonal changes and climate.
