Coastal Temperate Rainforests

The coastal temperate rainforests of BC provide a world of discovery encompassing the highest biomass (total amount of mass of organisms) per hectare than any other ecosystem on earth, The largest intact temperate rainforest in the world is found in BC and embedded in the land is millennia of First Nations history, culture and livelihood.

These temperate rainforests are very rare and disappearing fast before our eyes. As the guardians of biodiversity, indigenous cultures and ecological processes as well as landscapes for a world of recreational and ecotourism opportunities, the worth of these coastal temperate rainforests to future generations is greater than ever.
