24년 동안의 반대 운동, 건설 세력으로부터 자연을 지키기 위해 무엇을 해야 할까요?
Deep in the wilds of British Columbia lies an ethereal, rugged valley?cherished alpine backcountry that deserves permanent protection. At the headwaters of the Columbia River, Jumbo Creek cascades out of one of the deepest snowpacks on earth, past crumbling glacial ice, wildflowers and Grizzly tracks. The Jumbo Valley is recognized by scientists as part of one of North America’s most important intact wildlife corridors and the Grizzlies that roam there remain sacred to First Nations.
But, for nearly 25 years, local people?First Nations, skiers, riders, alpinists and conservationists?have fought a proposed large-scale ski resort in Jumbo. As developers face environmental assessments, political roadblocks, and overwhelming local outcry, British Columbia residents are asking: What more will it take to keep Jumbo wild for good?
As the fate of this valley continues to hang in the balance, we support local people and groups like Wildsight as they forge alliances and fight to keep Jumbo wild.
