Join Tim Burkhart, Y2Y's Peace River Break Coordinator, as he shares a bit about B.C.'s Wild Hart ranges in Vancouver on Nov. 23. 

The beating heart of a vast, wild and diverse ecosystem, the Hart ranges of northeastern British Columbia are the last wild landscape in a sea of development. 

Sanctuary to 37 threatened and endangered species, this bridge of intact wilderness enables wildlife to move between two big islands of protected habitat: the Muskwa-Kechika area to the north, and the big parks of the central Rocky Mountains to the south.

Although the majority of the Peace Break region has extensive road networks and a massive industrial footprint, a band of relatively intact land extends north-south along these mountains, giving it national and international ecological significance as the last contiguous intact forest landscape in the Peace.

The Harts are a vast, wild and diverse landscape, but the staggering pace of development on the land—including coal mining, oil and gas, forestry, and wind farms—threatens to collapse this unique bridge of wilderness forever. One caribou herd has already disappeared, gone forever, and other wildlife populations are staring at the same fate.

Yellowstone to Yukon is working with First Nations and other partners to ensure the rich natural heritage of these wild mountains are part of a legacy that future generations can enjoy and of which all British Columbians can be proud.
