SCCA files 50 Wildlife Habitat Area nominations
The SCCA has formally nominated 50 areas of Marbled Murrelet nesting habitat in the Sunshine Coast Forest District (SCFD) for Wildlife Habitat Area (WHA) designation.
The Marbled Murrelet is a small seabird that nests on mossy branches of old growth forests. Its original range extended from California to Alaska. These WHA nominations represent a small fraction of the birds’ nesting habitat that is unprotected and at risk.

SCCA submits to OGMA review
The opportunity for public input on proposed Old Growth Management Areas within five Landscape Units in the Sunshine Coast Forest District is now closed.
Thanks to the knowledge and energy of three volunteers, the SCCA was able to make a submission in the hopes of creating better representations of, and protection for, the biodiversity found in our forests.
As this review consisted of 600 individual Old Growth polygons spread over 5 landscape units, it was decided to make comments and recommendations on the legal and policy context within which the OGMAs are being proposed and then focus on the Salmon Landscape unit in our examination of specific siting issues. One of the main issues was the number of polygons that were of insufficient dimension to offer the characteristics of an interior forest condition. Click on the link to see the full submission.
