Eco-System Based Planning

For several years the Xeni Gwet'in have worked with Herb Hammond of the SILVA Forest Foundation to develop an eco-system based plan for management of their lands and resources. They wisely perceive that only in this way can they develop an economy that is truly sustainable because it will protect in perpetuity their way of life and resources. By avoiding the rush to massive resource extraction that personifies what our provincial and federal governments espouse, they hope to avoid the cumulative degradation of ecosystems that marks so much of the rest of British Columbia and Canada and to act as a model for others communities with similar values.
