    In 2020, when the BC government was arranging 2-year deferrals of logging in some old-growth forests in BC, it apparently hoped to include the Central Walbran Valley. The image above shows the area that was to be included. When the deferral areas were announced, however, the Central Walbran deferral had been deleted.

  • Legal Old Growth Management Areas on Vancouver Island

    This map will take a few moments to load. It allows you to determine whether an area of old growth is currently included in a legal OGMA established by the ministry of forests. Legal OGMAs are not "protected" in the sense that parks or ecological reserves are protected.

    Zoom into or out of the map using the + or - buttons. Pan around the map by clicking and dragging it to another location.
