Logging banned in most of B.C.'s Great Bear Rainforest

 


Industrial logging will be prohibited across 85 per cent of forested lands within B.C.’s Great Bear Rainforest, according to a long-awaited landmark agreement announced Monday in Vancouver by the province, First Nations, environmentalists and forest companies.

In a ceremony at the University of B.C.’s Museum of Anthropology, the various stakeholders announced that logging will be allowed on only about 550,000 hectares of the 3.65 million hectares of forested lands on the central and north coast.
