The Western Canada Wilderness Committee has picked the protection of Duu Guusd – which covers the northwestern chunk of Graham Island – as one of its top good news stories of 2008. The BC government protected several areas, including Duu Guusd, with its Bill 38, passed in June. The Wilderness Committee praised the bill for its protection of the Upper Elaho Valley and portions of the Great Bear Rainforest as well as Duu Guusd. The Wilderness Committee described Duu Guusd as an “amazing area of mountains and valleys cloaked in ancient temperate rainforest and rimmed by a wave-tossed coast line.” The committee chose 11 other good news stories from western Canada, including the Manitoba government’s decision to stop logging in its provincial parks and Island Timberlands decision to shelve plans to log in Cathedral Grove on Vancouver Island.
