Raincoast is a team of conservationists and scientists empowered by our research to protect the lands, waters and wildlife of coastal British Columbia. We use rigorous, peer-reviewed science and grassroots activism to further our conservation objectives. We call this approach ‘informed advocacy’ and it is unique among conservation efforts. Our vision for coastal British Columbia is to protect the habitats and resources of umbrella species. We believe this approach will help ensure the survival of all species and ecological processes occurring at different geographic and temporal scales. Investigate. Inform. Inspire : We investigate to understand coastal species and processes. We inform by bringing science to decision makers and communities. We inspire action to protect and conserve wildlife and their supportive habitats.

FLAP's dedication has placed bird collisions with buildings at the centre of the wildlife conservation map and out extensive database of bird collision statistics is now a primary resource for ornithological research worldwide. Thanks to your support we can create a 24-hour collision free environment for migratory birds.

Founded in 2001, the rare Charitable Research Reserve is a 900+ acre land reserve situated at the confluence of the Grand and Speed Rivers in the heart of the Waterloo Region. The reserve is a beautiful and culturally significant landscape that includes trees more than 240 years old. Rich in biodiversity, rare is home to an array of flora and fauna; some of which are ranked significant regionally, provincially, nationally, and even globally. We strive to preserve the land for future generations by focusing on conservation, ecological restoration, research, education, and passive recreation opportunities to the surrounding community.
Save Our wild Salmon Coalition (SOS) unites conservationists, clean energy advocates, fishing associations, and businesses to protect and restore endangered wild salmon and steelhead populations in Pacific Northwest rivers and marine waters for use by people and ecosystems.
