After the throne speech: Tell the government to protect 25% of BC by 2025
This week, in the annual Speech to the Throne, BC’s government committed to tackling the climate emergency at our door.
Nature works hard. Our forests keep carbon out of the air we breathe. Wetlands keep water in their systems, preventing floods.
Remind our leaders that protecting 25% of BC’s lands and waters by 2025 will help mitigate the worst of climate change and safeguard nature for future generations.
