Road Map to Become Carbon Neutral
The Great Bear Rainforest Carbon Offset Project
The Great Bear Rainforest is home to the largest intact coastal temperate rainforest remaining in the world. The resources of Great Bear are vast and valuable to Coastal First Nations. It is a landmark project for balancing human well-being and ecological integrity through carbon finance and is the first carbon project in Canada on the traditional territory with unextinguished Aboriginal rights and Titles.
The Great Bear Forest Carbon Project is an Improved Forest Management project, validated by the BC Forest Carbon Offset Protocol (FCOP) with offsets listed on the BC Carbon Registry and values the forest not as a source of lumber alone, but as a balanced system that sustains biodiversity and an enriched community.
Without the project, the protected areas would not have been established and harvest levels would not have been reduced. Organizations and individuals have a unique opportunity to protect this valuable resource by investing in a conservation economy through the purchase of carbon offsets.
The Great Bear Rainforest is considered a global ecological treasure and, as a coastal temperate rainforest, one of the rarest ecosystems on Earth. It is home to ancient cedars and towering spruce trees which serve as important habitats for cougars, wolves, grizzly bears, and the iconic Kermode bear.
The project consists of three project areas including Haida Gwaii, the North and Central Mid-Coast, and the South Central Coast.
