Pacific Parklands partnered on a ground-breaking study, Natural Capital in BC’s Lower Mainland.

WHAT WE VALUE, WE WILL PROTECT AND PRESERVE

For the first time, an economic value was placed on the region’s natural capital – its forests, fields, wetlands, and waterways.

UNDERSTANDING WHAT’S AT RISK

Our region is experiencing rapid growth and urbanization. With the population expected to grow to more than 3 million residents by 2020, the strain on our ecological treasures will become even more intense.

THE IMPACT

This study of BC’s Lower Mainland estimated the value of our region’s natural capital as $5.4 billion.

“It is our hope that reports like this one will help to cultivate a deeper appreciation of the true value of nature and ensure that the vital green spaces within and around our communities are protected, restored and enhanced.”
