Mount Horne, the endangered mountainside above Cathedral Grove, at risk from Island Timberlands.

And more great news! The Ancient Forest Alliance's and UVic Environmental Law Centre's resolution calling on the province to establish a "Natural Land Acquisition Fund" to purchase and protect endangered ecosystems on private lands (using the 'Pop for Parks' mechanism) was also passed today at the Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities (AVICC) AGM. If implemented by the province, this will make it easier to purchase and protect places like Mount Horne - the endangered mountainside above Cathedral Grove at risk from Island Timberlands - and endangered forests, grasslands, wetlands, and ecosystems throughout BC on private lands. THANKS to the thousands of you who wrote letters, and to the Highlands, Victoria, and Saanich councillors who pioneered the original support for this, and for all the councillors today who voted for the fund!
