Canada | First Nations propose large conservation area in northern BC

First Nations in northern British Columbia are calling on the provincial government to endorse an ambitious proposal for a 40,000-square kilometre conservation area to protect major watersheds and sensitive species.


The proposal would cover the ancestral areas of three Kaska Dena First Nations and would be larger than Vancouver Island, taking up a massive section of north-central B.C.
