Why is the CDFCP Region at Risk

treefrog TEThe CDFCP Region is at risk of losing many of the species, relationships, and healthy ecosystems that define it.  Confined to a small area on south eastern Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast, the natural ecosystems are competing with human pressures, including development, industrial landscape use, increasing numbers and frequency of invasive species, and increased recreational use. Some of the ecosystems associated with the CDFCP Region, such as Coastal Bluffs, Garry Oak ecocystems, and wetland ecosystems, have lost well over 75% of their former area.
