DFO finds rare whale on BC coast

In June, researchers at Fisheries and Oceans Canada spotted a North Pacific right whale off the BC coast.  This is one of the planet’s rarest and most endangered whales since they were hunted to near extinction.  The last NP right whale seen in BC was in 1951; it was killed by whalers. Footage is from DFO and Dr. John Ford’s interview was with The Province.

Help us protect KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest

Together with Pender Islands Conservancy, we are raising funds to purchase and permanently protect a 45 acre forested property on the edge of the Salish Sea. The KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest is located within the Coastal Douglas-fir (CDF) biogeoclimatic zone, one of the most biodiverse ecosystems in Canada. It is also among the most threatened in Canada. Protecting these forests is an investment in our collective future.

We’ve just announced a donation matching campaign to support the purchase and permanent protection of KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest. Every dollar donated before December 31, 2022 will be matched by anonymous donors. This is a chance for you to double your impact!
