Discovery Islands biodiversity conservation and forest carbon stewardship project



Photo to left: The channel running east toward the Coast Mountain Range is known as "Hole-in-the-Wall." It separates Maurelle Island (right) and Sonora Island. BC Timber Sales has laid out cutblocks along the north end of Maurelle Island just above the channel.

The Discovery Islands Forest Conservation Project is investigating the impacts of clearcut logging taking place on this group of Islands at the north end of the Salish Sea. The organization is conducting a survey of biodiversity and mapping all remaining primary forest, including old growth. The project is examining how a transition could be made from traditional clearcut logging to a practice of biodiversity conservation, forest carbon stewardship and development of research and recreational potential.
