Reports and Books

Salish sea cover

As a natural extension of our primary scientific literature, Raincoast also compiles popular reports designed to inform the public, stakeholders, and decision makers on conservation issues relevant to coastal British Columbia.

Our 2016 report, Our threatened Coast: Nature and Shared benefits in the Salish Sea demonstrates how the region’s biological diversity –its plants and animals- is captured in our values, has shaped our cultural identity and is linked to economic benefits in the billions of dollars.  It considers what is at stake from a host of proposed coastal energy and shipping projects.
