Reports and Books
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 2010 report, What’s at Stake: the Cost of Oil on British Columbia’s Priceless Coast, draws on five years of at-sea surveys by Raincoast scientists, but places the future of BC’s unique coastline in a broader ecological context. It informed the early discussions regarding the potential of oil tankers and associated activities along the coast.
