Mountain Caribou Alert: Call to Action!

Please write a letter today in support asking for a moratorium on industrial logging in the Upper Clearwater Valley and an expansion of the Wells Gray Provincial Park boundary!

Wells Gray World Heritage - Trevor Goward, February 1, 2013

Mountain Caribou Alert: Call to Action!
Mountain Caribou
2011 Valhalla Wilderness Society

The threatened Mountain Caribou – kin to Santa’s reindeer – is about to become even more threatened if forestry giant Canadian Forest Products is allowed to log in the Upper Clearwater Valley adjacent to Wells Gray Provincial Park.

A pending proposal by Canfor to salvage log beetle-killed Lodgepole Pine near Wells Gray would not only kibosh any spontaneous recovery the park’s resident Mountain Caribou might have in store, it would also further stress a herd already in serious decline.

That’s the message recently sent in a letter to Mr. Terry Lake, B.C. Minister of Environment and MLA for the North Thompson, by the Wells Gray World Heritage Committee (WGWHC), a group dedicated to furthering the candidacy of British Columbia’s fourth largest wilderness park for designation as a World Heritage Site.

Write YOUR letter today and help make that important difference!

Please visit the Wells Gray World Heritage website to read the full details of the situation and see great photos and maps of the area.

Click the Action! tab for a sample letter to Terry Lake, B.C.’s Minister of Environment and MLA for Kamloops-North Thompson and Steve Thomson, B.C.’s Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.

Thank you!!
