Garry Oak Ecosystems: In all of Canada, Garry Oak and associated ecosystems occur only on southeastern Vancouver Island (Victoria area to the Comox Valley), on the Gulf Islands and in two isolated areas in the Fraser Valley. Today, only about one per cent of these ecosystems remain in near-natural condition in the Capital Regional District.
