By Stacey MarpleHaida Gwaii ObserverIt was recently brought to the attention of Skeena-Queen Charlotte Regional District (SQCRD) that there has been a case of vandalism at Jungle Beach, where an outhouse and some signage were damaged. The repairs will cost the public $400. “It is such a shame to see senseless vandalism, in such a world-class place,” Daniel Fish the deputy corporate officer of SQCRD said. Since 2013 the Jungle Beach Recreation site has been maintained by the SQCRD in partnership with the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources and the Ministry of Transportation, after the responsibility handed over from the Lawhill Society.Since signing the the new agreement, government representatives and volunteers have worked tirelessly to ensure Jungle Beach is kept clean, maintained and remains open and accessible to the public. Clean up of the site following the recent vandalism required a remediation strategy between agencies and a considerable amount of staff and volunteer time. In a press release the SQCRD requested “that residents refrain from any future vandalism or obstruction of the Jungle Beach Recreation site.”  The district is also asking that residents remain vigilant in reporting any and all vandalism to public recreation facilities by calling 250-624-2002.
