Stretching from coast to coast, the Boreal forest is one of the largest tracts of ancient forest in the world, encompassing more than half of Canada's landmass. It is a diverse and awe-inspiring landscape of granite outcrops, lakes, rivers and marshes, interspersed with pine, spruce, aspen and poplar forests. It is home to hundreds of First Nations and other communities, as well as threatened iconic species such as woodland caribou and wolverine.
The Great Bear rainforest represents one quarter of the world's remaining coastal temperate rainforest. It stretches along the mainland coast of British Columbia to the Alaska border and covers an area the size of Switzerland. The Great Bear rainforest is home to the rare white Spirit Bear, salmon streams and dozens of First Nations communities. Once wholly threatened with large-scale industrial logging, Greenpeace continues to work to ensure that the 2006 and 2009 Great Bear Rainforest Agreements are implemented for the rainforest's long-term protection.
Greenpeace campaigns to prevent the reckless destruction of Indonesia's remaining rainforests. We are doing so to protect endangered wildlife like the Sumatran tiger and orangutan, to support forest communities, and to stop greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation. One of the leading drivers of this forest destruction is Asia Pacific Resources International Limited (APRIL).
British Columbia’s Clayoquot Sound is an ecological treasure of regional, national and global significance. Its mountains, valleys and islands represent Vancouver Island’s largest intact ancient rainforest. Home to 45 known endangered, threatened and vulnerable animal species, Clayoquot’s forests are an invaluable haven for wildlife. In the early 1990s, Greenpeace joined fellow environmental groups, the region’s First Nations and the public to protect the intact old-growth rainforests of Clayoquot Sound from logging. However, despite increased protection, many of these ecologically intact areas remain unprotected and are still vulnerable to logging today.
