The Great Bear Rainforest

July 2015 – The Great Bear Rainforest spans the British Columbia coast between Vancouver Island and Southeastern Alaska. A set of agreements are now being completed about the conservation regime that will apply to this region. We look at the Great Bear Rainforest Agreements, the way that they were negotiated, and the relationship between forestry policies and global warming. Hear from Jens Wieting, the Forest and Climate Campaigner with the Sierra Club British Columbia and then hear from Domenico Iannidinardo, Chief Forester and Vice President for Sustainability with TimberWest.
