Raincoast’s Gulf Islands Forest Project is focused on addressing biodiversity loss, climate change and other human caused impacts on Coastal Douglas-fir (CDF) habitats.
Unique to the south coast of British Columbia, CDF ecosystems are characterized by Coastal Douglas-fir trees as a dominant species but also include sand dunes, estuaries, Garry oak meadows, and rocky outcrops.
Regionally, these habitats cover less than 1% of provincial land area, with the Salish Sea’s Gulf Islands hosting 25%.
Using Raincoast’s signature approach of informed advocacy, the Gulf Islands Forest Project combines community engagement with science and policy review to work towards conservation of Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystems.
