I've been pretty busy as of late but have been on the computer a bunch in the last week trying to do some networking to protect a local old-growth valley in my area, The Raush , the largest unprotected watershed North of the Stein Valley in the greater Fraser River watershed.
One thing that came to me recently through my networking was this incredible interactive map put together by Conservation North, a small local volunteer-run ecosystem advocacy group out of Prince George.
The map takes a bit to load as you zoom in and zoom out, so be patient, and I've even had the thing crash on me a few times with apologies from Firefox, but still, if you are from jB.C. and are interested to see the extent of industrial exploitation on this province's forests (And You Might Be Shocked to See It-I was, and I thought I had a pretty good idea-so be warned), then this is a pretty good tool. And I just wanted to say that this was an amazing thing for this group to pull off on their spare time with some grant money and donations.
