Earlier this year, we visited the town of Tahsis on the northwest coast of Vancouver Island to explore the McKelvie Valley and learn first-hand from local residents why this rare, intact watershed needs protecting.
Turns out, local Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations are championing a new conservation model called Salmon Parks to protect old-growth forests & restore salmon habitat in Nootka Sound, including in the McKelvie.
Speak up! Tell the BC NDP to support Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas like the Nootka Sound Salmon Parks. ⬇️
