Fragile!

Known as Kvaii (Heiltsuk), Kvai (Wuikiala) or Koeye (anglicized), this pristine, un-roaded, old-growth landscape was identified by the Nature Conservancy of Canada as one of many priorities for conservation on the BC Coast. Fortunately, the Provincial government in consultation with First Nations agreed to protect a great many of the places that NCC identified through its science-based planning, including the entire public (Crown) land-base of the Koeye watershed. Shortly thereafter, NCC and its partners purchased all of the remaining private land in the watershed from a multi-national logging company to ensure that this amazing place would be protected in perpetuity.

If you are interested in helping NCC to conserve special places like this, see www.natureconservancy.ca
