Protect the Dakota Bowl Bear Sanctuary
Logging these forests will destroy one of the best bear habitats on the Coast.
On the slopes rising above Dakota Creek (lower Sunshine Coast) a population of black bears (Ursus americanus) has found a sanctuary – safe from human disturbance. However, BC Timbers Sales (BCTS) is planning on logging 50.4Ha, or 124.5 acres of this forest, where dozens of bear den sites would be destroyed. Loss of this special habitat will displace these bears and drive them into human-conflict zones. Logging these old-growth forests would be a tragic loss to the Sunshine Coast. Dakota Bowl Bear Sanctuary is on traditional Squamish 1st Nation territory. The Sunshine Coast Regional District opposes logging in The Dakota Bowl Community Watershed. Find out more...
