BC GRASSLANDS ARE ESSENTIAL

It’s easy to appreciate the stunning beauty of BC’s open spaces. Would you prize them even more if you understood what rare natural treasures grasslands truly are?

In addition to their intrinsic value as part of the natural world, grasslands provide a wealth of benefits to us and to our communities. They perform key functions that support our lives and livelihoods in a whole range of ways that are not always obvious.

BC GRASSLANDS ARE THREATENED

Native grasslands cover less than 1% of BC’s land base. Even so, they are home to more than 30% of its species at risk. Grasslands support more threatened and endangered plants and animals than any other habitat type in the province.

Over time, grasslands have been developed and used without due consideration of the impact on these sensitive ecosystems. Misuse and mismanagement of the landscape have damaging effects.

GCC IS MAKING HEADWAY

The long-term sustainability of BC’s grasslands is threatened by poorly planned and thoughtless human activities. However, we do have information to help us make decisions in favour of healthy grasslands and healthy communities.

By working together to protect special areas, practicing active management, and engaging in wise stewardship, we can strengthen and renew our grassland ecosystems.
