Long-term Desired Outcome
CVLT intends to ensure that the biological inheritance we have have received from previous generations is passed on, undiminished, to future generations. This includes not only the biological diversity of the Comox Valley, but also the water quantity and quality, the air quality, the aesthetic beauty and the natural abundance of marine, freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems that make this place K'omoks: "the land of plenty". CVLT acknowledges the unceded aboriginal rights and title of the K'omoks First Nation within the Comox Valley and beyond.
As the human population continues to radically expand in the Comox Valley, natural ecosystems become increasingly rare and degraded. A recent analysis has revealed that less than 5% of the natural ecosystems of the Comox Valley remain "intact". As these ecosystems decrease in area, they become increasingly valuable as habitat and are critical to protecting our native biodiversity. Linking these habitats is important to the survival of plants and wildlife living in them.
