Raincoast Conservation Foundation
We use rigorous, peer-reviewed science and community engagement to further our conservation objectives. We call this approach ‘informed advocacy’ and it is unique amongst conservation efforts. We investigate to understand coastal species and processes. We inform by bringing science to decision makers and communities. We inspire action to protect wildlife and their wilderness habitats.
Raincoast’s Oil-Free Coast initiative addresses the impacts and risks associated with pipelines and tankers to the coasts of coastal British Columbia. Protecting the animals, lands and waters from both habitat destruction and degradation, and the very real consequences of a catastrophic oil spill are the basis for this program.
Raincoast’s goal is to conserve and protect the habitats and resources of umbrella species to ensure the future for all species that exist on different scales. Our flagship projects include primary research and conservation efforts on wild salmon, large carnivores, and marine species, including marine mammals, marine birds, and Pacific herring.
