Afforestation, Reforestation and Nature preservation
The project purchased around 63k hectares of boreal forest in south-eastern British Columbia to protect it from subdivision, high-impact logging, and other threats to the biotope. It leverages carbon finance to conserve critical ecosystems and carbon sequestration areas at an unprecedented scale.
About the project
Located in south-eastern British Columbia, the project began in 2008 when the project developer purchased around 63,000 hectares (156,000 acres) of private Boreal forest to protect it from subdivision, high-impact logging and other environmental threats. The project zones and monitors different areas of the property and targets specific areas for: stringent biodiversity preservation by limiting/deactivating roads, infrastructure, and activity; public access; invasive species control, conservation research, and a low level of sustainable harvesting. The project leverages carbon finance to conserve critical ecosystems and carbon sequestration areas at an unprecedented scale.
The project delivers approximately 415,000 tonnes of emissions reductions annually to help take urgent action to combat climate change (SDG 13) by avoiding the release of carbon through timber harvesting, road building and other forestry operations. In addition, the project supports other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
