Today, Shell and the Tŝilhqot'in National Government announced they are jointly undertaking a reforestation project in Tŝilhqot'in territory where wildfires in recent years have significantly impacted the region and the Tŝilhqot'in communities located there. Shell will provide funding, and the Tŝilhqot'in will manage project delivery.
The planting of approximately 840,000 native species will be managed by Central Chilcotin Rehabilitation, a Tŝilhqot'in-owned forestry company. Reforestation will take place in fire-impacted areas that have not regenerated on their own or have been slow to regenerate.
