Welcome to the temperate rainforest, we’re so glad you are joining us today!
As you will see, the temperate rainforest is home to giant trees, lush plant life and a huge diversity of animals and fungi. Healthy biodiversity supports healthy ecosystems, which produce goods we can’t live without. Things like the air that we breathe, the food that we eat and the medicines that heal us.
Whistler is on the eastern edge of the temperate rainforest, so we’re on the transition zone towards a drier continental climate. Our unique geography means that you can find continental as well as coastal species here.
