The rainforest in Haida Gwaii, Northern British Columbia
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.
