The coastal subspecies of Northern Goshawk, the Queen Charlotte Goshawk (Accipiter gentilis laingi), is an uncommon forest raptor that is currently on the British Columbia "Red List" as a candidate species for Endangered or Threatened status. It is also classified as an Identified Wildlife Species under the BC Forest Practices Code, Identified Wildlife Management Strategy (IWMS). Federally, the Queen Charlotte Goshawk is listed as Threatened by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC). Population trends of Queen Charlotte Goshawk are uncertain. As of 2003, 40 nests in 12 goshawk territories had been found in CanFor's TFL 37, on north-central Vancouver Island. CanFor has committed to managing habitat for this species through an Adaptive Management Strategy involving approved Wildlife Habitat Areas, which vary from normal IWMS provisions. Ten goshawk WHAs were endorsed by government in March 2003.
