THE TIME IS NOW

We are in a critical decade to address climate change, biodiversity loss, indigenous reconciliation, and human health. Globally, British Columbia is significant, with some of the last large tracts of wilderness in the world’s temperate zone. From the Pacific Ocean to the Rocky Mountains, BC is also home to a stunning array of biodiversity, including migratory species, species at risk, and 70% of Canada’s native mammal and bird species.

At the same time, the use of parks and protected areas is expanding. It is critical that we continue to find new ways to be inclusive and to promote responsible and safe enjoyment of parks, or we risk destroying the places we treasure and enjoy.
