Alberta Wildlife slaughter poses as science
Raincoast Conservation Foundation
We use rigorous, peer-reviewed science and grassroots activism 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.
At Raincoast, our vision 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, grizzly bears, wolves, marine mammals, marine birds, and herring.
In response to Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Expansion project and restrictions by the National Energy Board on participation and scope of the review, Raincoast wants the public to share how they are Directly Affected by BC’s oil export initiatives.
New study shows Canada’s species at risk rarely recover

Will there be peace on Earth for killer whales?
At this time of year we can reflect on whether we will ever achieve “peace on earth” unless we are willing to extend goodwill and compassion to the non-human inhabitants with whom we share this planet, especially those whose very existence hangs in the balance…
