Raincoast examines cougar conservation

View the poster

In May 2008, Raincoast presented a conference poster at the Mountain Lion Workshop in Sun Valley, Idaho. The poster, entitled “Cougars in British Columbia: conservation assessment and science-based management recommendations”, includes highlights from a forthcoming report that examines opportunities for cougar conservation. Based on our review of cougar ecology, research and management in BC and elsewhere, our report will provide a conservation assessment and framework for a science-based conservation plan. Long-term conservation strategies for BC cougars should include education and awareness efforts, habitat protection and freedom from (over)exploitation.

Support our mobile lab, Tracker!

Our new mobile lab will enable the Healthy Waters Program to deliver capacity, learning, and training to watershed-based communities. We need your support to convert the vehicle and equip it with lab instrumentation. This will allow us to deliver insight into pollutants of concern in local watersheds, and contribute to solution-oriented practices that protect and restore fish habitat.
