Forest change in Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest compared to its broader ecoregion in British Columbia

(2015/03/16) The Great Bear Rainforest is the name coined by environmental groups in the mid-1990s to refer to this remote region of temperate rain forest on the British Columbia Coast between Vancouver Island and Southeast Alaska. It is one of the largest remaining tracts of unspoiled temperate coastal rainforest left in the world. The Great Bear Rainforest is the subject of our most recent "hotspot" analysis using the new, high-resolution Hansen forest change dataset. See the summary on the international GFW website: http://www.globalforestwatch.org/stories/185
