Closing Letter: Forest Practices Board’s report on management of Haida Gwaii goshawks complaint

The Sierra Club’s Haida Gwaii group filed a complaint regarding development within the Bonanza Wildlife Habitat Area and concern with the management of the Northern Goshawk on Haida Gwaii. The complainant alleged that inadequate protection of foraging habitat, a one per cent timber-supply cap on protection measures, lack of co-ordination between licensees operating in the area, and failure to require nest surveys prior to harvesting could put goshawk habitat at risk.
