Haida Gwaii

Here are some photos from a visit in 2013 by Ancient Forest Alliance campaigners Ken Wu, TJ Watt, and Hannah Carpendale to Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands), a spectacular part of the province where the campaigns to protect old-growth forests in BC began in the 1970’s. Thanks to the dedicated efforts of the Council of Haida Nation and conservationists, over 50% of the Islands have been protected through legislation in Haida Protected Areas (Conservancies), Gwaii Haanas (South Moresby) National Park Reserve, and various provincial parks and ecological reserves, with additional areas protected through regulations. Some of the finest ancient Sitka spruce and redcedar stands are found here, as well as spectacular coastal terrestrial and marine ecosystems! Photography by TJ Watt.
