Cameron Valley Firebreak
The Cameron Valley Firebreak is a beautiful 150 hectare old-growth forest on Vancouver Island that is a 20 minute drive from the town of Port Alberni, and several kilometres upstream from the world-famous Cathedral Grove. The area was formerly protected by the provincial government as an Ungulate Winter Range (UWR) for Roosevelt elk and black-tailed deer until the lands were largely deregulated in 2004 when the BC Liberal government removed them from Tree Farm License 44. In late April, 2012, Island Timberlands began logging this ancient forest of extremely high recreation and ecological value - filled with ancient coastal Douglas-firs (99% of which have been logged), wintering Roosevelt elk and black-tailed deer, and Culturally Modified Trees of cedars with bark stripped by First Nations. Conservationists are calling on Island Timberlands to halt their logging of the grove until funds can be secured for the purchase of Island Timberland’s high conservation value forests, including the Cameron Valley Firebreak.
