The Chilcotin Ark is located in British Columbia, Canada, in the rain shadow of the Coastal Range Mountains, between Lillooet and Tweedsmuir Park. The Ark is a unique place for nature and wildlife due to its location and a unique combination of ecosystems. For this reason it is important to manage and protect the lands within the Ark. Due to the variety of ecosystems, a huge variety of plants and animals inhabit the Ark and add to it’s uniqueness as well as its need for management and protection. Community partners within the Chilcotin Ark take responsibility for and take care of the environment they are living and working in. Our community partners include the First Nation communities, universities, as well as settlement and corporate communities that are operating within the Ark.
