Podchat 09 | Biodiversity & Ecosystem Fragmentation in Old Growth Forests with Dr Rachel Holt

Dr Rachel Holt is a forest ecologist based out of Nelson BC, and one of the authors of the infamous 'BC's Old Growth Forest: A Last Stand for Biodiversity' Report that was published in 2020, which created a huge wake throughout Canada regarding forestry practices and our diminishing old growth forests. The report and work she did also contributed to the BC Government's Strategic Review of Old Growth Forests which helped outline our current state of affairs and the direction the province needs to move in the future...so in short, Rachel is kind of a big deal in the world of forests. Her and I sat down after working on another project together to chat through some of the details of biodiversity, habitat fragmentation, and what (if anything) is actually happening when it comes to changing the landscape of the forest industry in BC for the better.
