We at the CV Land Trust are wanting to start a discussion around the difference between "Green Development" and "Conservation". We at the Land Trust see a compatibility between these two concepts.
We at the Land Trust believe that there needs to be areas set aside for non-human use; there are areas that are not suitable for any kind of human land use. Connections between protected areas must be made over time to link protected areas together. These interconnected areas then are suitable to protect the biodiversity that is so much a part of this incredible region's beauty, sustainability and economic stability.
Once we have created a network of protection, required restoration of lost ecosystem functioning with every new building and (re-development) and buildings themselves have become as "green" as modern technologies and methodologies allow we are defining the protection of Natural Wealth. Green development and conservation then go hand in hand into the future of the Comox Valley
