British Columbia, with its diverse landscapes, pristine ecosystems, and vast tracts of wilderness, has one of the highest proportions of protected land of any jurisdiction in the world.

Almost 15 per cent of British Columbia’s land is protected, with a wide range of provincial parks, national parks, and UNESCO World Heritage Sites to choose from. In the wilderness, you might catch a glimpse of an orca, pause to marvel at a moose, or simply watch eagles soar. You don’t need to go far to find a deep connection to nature.
