Canadian Conservation

The New York Times reports on a landmark agreement that was reached after years of negotiation to protect 15-million acres of the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia. The Nature Conservancy describes the deal:

The Great Bear Rainforest is part of the largest coastal temperate rainforest remaining on Earth and supports some of the oldest surviving cultures in the Western Hemisphere. Its preservation is one of the most compelling conservation visions of our time. Today’s agreement — and the unique partnership between industry, environmentalists, governments and local communities that made it possible — marks a watershed event for both conservation and industry.

Grist Magazine has a slide show with pictures of the rainforest. Tidepool has more detail on the announcement.
