The Evergreen Alliance is hoping to set up a network of mapping projects across the province that observe and record forest destruction at a local level. With the Discovery Islands Mapping Project we are creating an example of how this can be done. The project is currently compiling a 10-year record of forest cover loss, loss of forest carbon and loss of carbon sequestration capacity in the forests on these islands. It is also mapping remaining primary forest and conducting surveys of biodiversity and special geographical features. The objective of the project is to help the communities on these islands find a pathway to a less destructive, more ecologically-based and economically balanced use of forests. You will find the project here.
