Our first blog entry!

More notes, more ideas, more reflections. More action.

The Raincoast Conservation Foundation has been at the fore front of science and research on the coast of British Columbia for a number of years. We publish peer reviewed papers, we develop reports, we host conferences. We also have a talent for getting press, we produce a hit newsletter, Notes From the Field, and an award winning annual report, Tracking Raincoast. But this year, we aim to provide more insights, more reflections and more ideas from the individual voices of the members of our team.

To do this we created a blog. Welcome.

Posts are forthcoming. If there are particular people you want to hear from, or if there are particular topics you’re interested in having addressed, please let us know by leaving a comment.

You can help

Raincoast’s in-house scientists, collaborating graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professors make us unique among conservation groups. We work with First Nations, academic institutions, government, and other NGOs to build support and inform decisions that protect aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the wildlife that depend on them. We conduct ethically applied, process-oriented, and hypothesis-driven research that has immediate and relevant utility for conservation deliberations and the collective body of scientific knowledge.

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 wildlife habitats.
