The Chilcotin Ark, an intricate ecosystem spanning 2.5 million hectares situated sheltered by the Coast Range Mountains, showcases remarkable ecological richness evident in its diverse biogeoclimatic zones. Hosting 13 out of the 16 biogeoclimatic zones found in British Columbia, the Chilcotin Ark stands out as a bastion of biodiversity. Within its boundaries, it harbors 11 of North America’s 29 big game species, underscoring its status as one of the most diverse regions in BC. The Chilcotin Ark Institute is committed to creating a working landscape concept and management that sustains viable populations of species in the Chilcotin Ark.
