Investigate. Inform. Inspire.

Published Scientific Literature

Our 2012 paper (above) uses grizzlies to assess harvest impacts of sockeye fisheries. It’s an example of how to consider ecosystem objectives in salmon management.

Raincoast is a team of scientists and conservationists that undertakes primary research to inform our conservation objectives.  We work with First Nations, academic institutions, government scientists and other NGOs to gather information and build support for decisions that protect marine and terrestrial ecosystems, their components and processes.

Raincoast’s in-house scientists, collaborating graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professors make us unique among NGOs.  We conduct applied, process-oriented, and hypothesis-driven research that has immediate and relevant utility for the conservation debate and the collective body of scientific knowledge.
