Julia Hargreaves

Chosen twice for the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Birds in Art exhibition and two-time Ducks Unlimited National Art Portfolio winner, internationally published BC wildlife artist Julia Hargreaves trained in England and received an MA from Manchester Metropolitan University.

As a member of Artists for Conservation, her work has appeared in several of their annual exhibitions, including the inaugural exhibition at Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum, New York, and in 2008 she illustrated Birdscapes: A Pop-Up Celebration of Bird Song.

In 2011 she took part in a canoe trip with the Wilderness River Expedition Artists Federation to Caribou Woodland Park in Ontario to sketch and record the boreal forest as part of a project to help preserve the largest remaining intact forest on the planet. Julia is represented by Tutt St. Gallery and Picture Perfect, Kelowna; Lloyd Gallery, Penticton; Avenida Galleries, Calgary; and Robert Paul Galleries, Stowe, Vermont, USA.

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.
