Reason to Protect

4y ago


Elphinstone Logging Focus, an environmental organization is working against all odds to protect a rare and threatened ancient forests on the badly depleted Mt Elphinstone, located on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. I joined Ross Muirhead & Hans Penner on an organized group tour where Hans describes the natural history and cultural significance of this forest. He also takes us into a neighbouring forest to shows what will ultimately replace this now rare ancient forest if it is removed from the Mt Elphinstone slopes. Currently this rare yellow-cedar forest is slatted to be auctioned by British Columbia Timber Sales this month (August 2012). In this this video Ross Muirhead and Hans Penner outline the reasons why this forest needs to be protected. For more information please have a look at their website: loggingfocus.org
