The British Columbia Parks and Protected Areas network includes a large number of protected areas extending from the U.S.-Canada border north into B.C. Conifer forests of various types are the dominant land cover (including subalpine and alpine habitats) as well as alpine meadows at higher elevations. The objective for this case study is to help park managers incorporate climate change considerations into their everyday management decisions. We are working with managers in the Mid-coast region of BC. Current priority management issues in this region include grizzly bear viewing, population and habitat management and estuary protection and management.
