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.
