Encompassing more than six million hectares of globally rare coastal rainforest, the Great Bear Rainforest in coastal British Columbia is home to thousand-year-old trees, rich runs of salmon, abundant species, including Kermode bears, grizzly bears, and wolves, as well as small, isolated, predominantly First Nations communities. Once slated for clear-cut logging, large areas were protected in 2006 by the signing of one of the worlds most significant and innovative conservation agreements.Tracking the Great Bear traces environmentalists efforts to save the area from status quo industrial forestry, while at the same time respecting First Nations right to economic development.

Adopting a novel theoretical approach from science and technology studies, the book explains environmentalists (contested) success as a result of their deployment of a powerful actor-network within British Columbias land-use decision-making process.This book makes a significant contribution to social scientific analyses of natural resource management.

Bridging the gap between interpretivist and social structural analyses, it demonstrates how the Great Bear Rainforest was made - or, rather, recreated - out of uncertain and contested links among people, trees, animals, and money.
