This mapping is from the BC ministry of forests. It describes the mapped areas this way: "Wildlife habitat areas (WHAs) are mapped areas that are necessary to meet the habitat requirements of an Identified Wildlife element. WHAs designate critical habitats in which activities are managed to limit their impact on the Identified Wildlife element for which the area was established. The purpose of WHAs is to conserve those habitats considered most limiting to a given Identified Wildlife element. This dataset contains proposed WHAs for the entire province except for the Omenica Region as there are none in the consultation phase at this time."
There are no (zero) WHAs currently mapped for Quadra Island in spite of known mapped occurrences of species at risk, including the Northern Goshawk.
