TELL THE BC GOVERNMENT NATURE NEEDS MORE
Across BC, old-growth forests, wetlands and grasslands are under threat from increased logging, mining and urban development. Not only does this threaten nature, it increases impacts of floods and wildfires, and lack of security for the future of clean air and water.
We don’t have time to wait. We need elected leaders to work together to support the conservation vision of First Nations and take immediate actions to stop the rapid loss of species and their habitat.
Send a letter your MLA and to the following decision makers in the BC government,
- Hon. Premier David Eby
- Hon. Nathan Cullen, Minister of Water, Land and Resource Stewardship
- Hon. George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy
and tell them you want to see them work together to protect nature for all at-risk species.
We’ve written a draft letter for you to send but we encourage you to personalize it to triple your impact!
Reaching 30% through Indigenous-led conservation
Indigenous-led conversation projects are one of the best ways to ensure our 30% target is met. For example, the Kaska Dena plan to protect an area larger than Vancouver Island. Known as Dene Kʼéh Kusān, this would be nearly 4 million hectares (or 4% of BC’s landbase) of new protected land abundant with wildlife.
This is especially important to shelter caribou, a species struggling to feed itself and breed in other parts of the province.
