The Great Bear Rainforest Series – By Moon Willow Press
Moon Willow Press hosts this ongoing series about the Great Bear Rainforest. The Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia (BC), Canada, is part of the Northwest Pacific Temperate Rainforest and was named by environmentalists campaigning to protect and conserve this 70,000 km2 kilometer area. Temperate rainforests are rare, and the Great Bear, along with the rest of the rainforest, makes up one-fourth of all temperate rainforests in the world. It’s also special because it is the largest undeveloped temperate rainforest on the planet and has a number of unique species. Moon Willow Press’s goals are to educate people about the forest and about threats to the area, including the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline project, which would run twin pipelines through a portion of this forest as well as introduce more tankers, along with supertankers, to the coastal ecosystem that makes up the Great Bear.
