A Conservation Review Of The Elphinstone Prov. Park Expansion Proposal

Wayne McCrory – one of Canada’s leading conservation-biologists, has completed an ecological review of the 2,000Ha lower Elphinstone forests that is the subject of a park expansion & protection area. Wayne conducted field studies, compiled and analysed existing data and has now completed a break-through report on our Elphinstone forest. He makes a compelling case for protection of this lower elevation, emerging old-growth forest. To avoid creating 'islands of extinction' due to having 3 isolated park zones as is the present case, McCrory's recommendation is to secure a 2,000Ha zone that will provide adequate buffer zones for the 3 park parcels, and in doing so help to maintain the viability of this blue-listed ecosystem.
