We’re pleased to announce the Recreational Canoeing Association of BC (RCABC), representing 400 members, has signed a resolution in support of old-growth forest protection!
By signing this resolution, RCABC is calling on the BC government to support First Nations to protect at-risk old-growth forests while ensuring sustainable economic development and enabling the shift to a second-growth forest industry.
Old-growth forests offer an unparalleled outdoor recreation experience and are an important part of BC’s appeal as a unique tourist destination. As long as ancient forests remain unprotected and vulnerable to logging, communities, tourists, and British Columbians stand to lose these incredible ecosystems and a sustainable way to enjoy them. If you or someone you know is a part of an outdoor recreation group, or another organization that benefits from the protection of old-growth forests, please join our network of non-traditional allies to call on the BC government to take the necessary steps to ensure the protection of old-growth forests while supporting First Nations and forestry-dependent communities.
