The rainforest in Haida Gwaii

Many distinct Indigenous people, including the Nisga’a, Haida and the Tahltan, occupy the unique landscapes of Northern BC.

Indigenous people co-manage and protect this untamed expanse–more than half of the size of the province–with a world-class system of parks and reserves that contain ancient rainforests and authentic coastal villages, lava fields, and glacial valleys.
