Coastal Douglas-fir Zone
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 B.C.'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.
