Date : 8th February 2006, Source : ENS



VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada, February 8, 2006 (ENS) - The British Columbia government has decided to protect a total of 2.1 million hectares (5.1 million acres) of coastal temperate rainforest, including critical Spirit Bear habitat, Premier Gordon Campbell announced Tuesday. The decision protects one third of the Great Bear Rainforest from all logging and will require the use of more sustainable logging practices for the remaining area.
