Carbon and Grasslands
Over the last several years, the GCC has been partnering with the Thompson Rivers University and High Country Consulting to investigate the value of carbon sequestration in the grasslands of BC. Carbon sequestration, or the amount of carbon that grasslands store, is considered an ecosystem services. Ecosystems services are the valuable functions that natural, intact areas perform--with great benefits for humans, animals and the general environment.
We are happy to publish a short summary of our research and the work we hope to do with partners of like mind around the province here. We have recently struck an Ecosystem Services Working Group that will be collaborating to share information and investigate ways to work together to help protect, maintain and enhance ecosystem services in grasslands and other areas.
Summary of Report and Working Group
The Grasslands Conservation Council of British Columbia (BC Grasslands) is dedicated to the stewardship and conservation of the rare and beautiful grasslands of our province.
Working to build a better understanding of grasslands and to provide methods and tools to better care for them, we pursue a vision of healthy and life-sustaining grasslands in BC for current and future generations.
