Sonora Island is the ‘tail-end’ of the Great Bear Rainforest (or depending on your orientation, it’s the head of the Great Bear). It’s around 160 square kilometers of primarily mountainous terrain, and mostly under forest cover. Homes are sporadically located along its coastline with access by boat and floatplane only. It’s part of unceded aboriginal traditional territories of three First Nations.
The Ancient Forest Alliance would like to thank LUSH Handmade Cosmetics for the contribution made through their "Charity Pot" grant program. This great support helps us push forward our major provincial campaign to protect endangered old-growth forests and ensure sustainable second-growth forestry in BC. The Charity Pot program works to fund a diversity of grassroots organizations including ones such as Sea Shepherd.
