Detailed Information:
One year ago, British Columbia moved from global pariah to the environmental hero with the announcement of the Great Bear Rainforest Agreement, which could become the largest conservation initiative in North America. This agreement included protection of 1.5 million acres of B.C.ís ancient forests.

However, ForestEthics, Greenpeace, the Sierra Club of British Columbia and Rainforest Action Network - the four environmental groups centrally involved in forging long-term solutions for the region - say the government's lack of progress in implementing this agreement could threaten the hard-won truce between environmentalists and logging companies.

The four groups have launched a new website with an action centre at www.savethegreatbear.org to urge the government to act on its commitments.
