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 wildlife and their wilderness habitats.
Raincoast publishes scientific papers and popular reports on a range of conservation issues as well as updates on our work and conservation efforts.
Raincoast undertakes primary research to investigate species and ecological processes to further our conservation objectives. We work with First Nations, academic institutions, government scientists and other NGO’s to perform on-the-ground research. We operate a lab at the University of Victoria, a research station on Denny Island, and a research vessel.
Reports and Books
Building from our research, and placing scientific information into a broader ecological context, Raincoast publishes both popular and technical material in our reports and books. We use this material to inform the public, stakeholders and decision makers and support decisions that protect marine and terrestrial ecosystem components and function.
In an effort to inspire others to take action for the animal inhabitants of the BC coast, Raincoast shares our conservation work in a variety of methods. We publish an annual report – Tracking Raincoast, a monthly conservation newsletter – Notes from the Field, a chronicle of our field work – Raincoast Blog, and all Raincoast generated media.
