The Kitlope Valley is the largest intact coastal temperate rainforest in the world. It's a complete primary watershed from the glacial headwaters to the salt water of the ocean. Hidden in an isolated area of northwestern British Columbia, the rugged terrain of the Kitlope is cloaked in old growth trees, many of which are up to 800 years old and 10 feet in diameter. Species in the area include bald eagles, peregrine falcons, mountain goats, black bears and grizzly bears. The rivers of the Kitlope hold large spawning runs of all five Pacific salmon species.
