Tracking the Great Bear

How Environmentalists Recreated British Columbia's Coastal Rainforest

Encompassing millions of hectares of globally rare coastal rainforest, the Great Bear Rainforest in coastal British Columbia is home to ancient trees, rich runs of salmon, and abundant species. The area also supports small human communities, particularly First Nations. Once slated for clearcut logging, large areas were protected in 2006 by the signing of one of the world's most innovative conservation agreements. This book provides a detailed account of the complex and contested process that resulted in the establishment of the GBR. It also shows how environmentalists' deployment of a powerful actor-network saved the area from status quo industrial forestry while still respecting First Nations' right to economic development.
