Klinaklini Resource Analysis

The Klinaklini watershed is located in the southwest portion of British Columbia. Carving through the Coast Mountains, it spans seven of the province’s 14 biogeoclimatic zones from the high, dry interior Chilcotin Plateau through the Coast Mountains to Knight Inlet, where the lower watershed exhibits all the characteristics of the coastal temperate rainforest ecosystem. The Klinaklini watershed supports extraordinary biological diversity – both plant and animal – including important grizzly bear populations, and encompasses outstanding physiographic features – including a 10 km river canyon that cuts between Mt. Waddington (the highest peak in the Coast Mountains) and the Homathko Icefield. Overall the Klinaklini watershed is associated with exceptional conservation values.

This report summarises the numerous physical and biological characteristics of the Klinaklini watershed, along with its recreational, tourism, mineral, and conservation values. It then details how forestry has been carried out in the region, and as well indicates what industry's future forest development plans may be. Finally the report concludes by suggesting how the outstanding conservation and biodiversity values in this interior-to-coastal watershed could be safeguarded through the establishment of three proposed conservation area
