Keep the Promise: Save the Great Bear Rainforest, 74°

The Great Bear Rainforest is the largest tract of intact coastal temperate rainforest left on Earth. It comprises over 30,000 square miles--about the size of Austria . It's home to three kinds of bears (grizzly, black and the rare spirit bear), six million migratory birds, 3000 genetically distinct salmon stocks and many species of plants unique to the region.

Two years ago, the province of British Columbia committed to protecting this region under a new conservancy. All the stakeholders--the provincial government, logging companies, First Nations and environmentalists--agreed to a new approach to resource planning developed by an independent team of scientists, and committed to its implementation by March 31, 2009.

While some progress has been made, BC must still initiate a regional plan to ensure conservation of these critical ecosystems.

With the March 2009 deadline fast approaching, ForestEthics is running a campaign to help secure the fate of The Great Bear Rainforest.

Individuals can send a message to the government of British Columbia , urging them to keep their promise to concerned citizens in BC and around the world by visiting this page and signing an online petition:

We might have come to know that the Great Bear Rainforest, is in the verge of getting endangered and extinct. Though it comprises over 30,000 sq miles, the condition place have become so much pathetic .with the year 2009, the deadline has approached so far and we will see as how will keep the promise.
