BC Parks Ecological Reserves

Ecological reserves are areas selected to preserve representative and special natural ecosystems, plant and animal species, features, and phenomena. Scientific research and educational purposes are the principal uses of ecological reserves.

Ecological reserves are established for the:
preservation of representative examples of British Columbia’s ecosystems;
protection of rare and endangered plants and animals in their natural habitat;
preservation of unique, rare or outstanding botanical, zoological or geological phenomena;
perpetuation of important genetic resources; and
scientific research and educational uses associated with the natural environment.

Help us reach 50,000 observations in Ecological Reserves by the end of 2021 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Ecological Reserves Act! Any observations you make in ecological reserves with a GPS point that falls within an ecological reserve boundary will be automatically added to this project.
