Although it is one of the smallest of British Columbia's 14 ecological zones, the Coastal Douglas-fir Zone is home to some of the province's most interesting and diverse ecosystems. A mild climate has also given this area some of the province's rarest vegetation, which is seriously threatened by growing human settlement. The Coastal Douglas-fir Zone covers a small area of British Columbia's south coast, including a band of lower elevation along southeastern Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, and a fringe of mainland along Georgia Strait. Victoria, Nanaimo, and Powell River are major urban centres in the area. Funding for the Internet version was provided by Forest Renewal BC.
