Editorial

Wilderness Travels is an on-line guide dedicated to exploring wilderness recreational adventures in British Columbia and elsewhere. As well, we are an advocate of keeping wilderness areas of this province intact, and to protect our precious wildlife, which make trekking in the wilderness, whether by foot, kayak, canoe or sail, the wonderful experience that it is. We believe that we humans must share the environment with our fellow animals, and that includes the habitat and food necessary to support them. We ask people who want to explore our wilderness to respect it, and leave it in the same condition they found it in, like the First Nations have done for thousands of years.
