Endangered species, decline of biodiversity, and more on Quirks and Quarks

Raincoast's Misty MacDuffee and other leading research scientists join CBC’s Bob McDonald to look at the challenges facing endangered species.

This episode of Quirks & Quarks explores pressing conservation issues facing endangered species.

Dr. Sheila Thornton from Fisheries and Oceans Canada discusses Southern Resident killer whales and UBC’s Dr. Tara Martin discusses the challenge of how we prioritize investments on species recovery when resources are limited. Raincoast works with Tara’s team at UBC to help focus potential habitat restoration efforts in the Fraser River Estuary. The show also features our project partner Murray Ned, Executive Director of the Lower Fraser Fisheries Alliance.

Listen in.

With more species at risk than resources to save them, conservationists face hard choices

Many species are dying out, and there aren’t enough resources to save them all. How do we start a conversation about what to save, and how much we’re willing to pay for it?

We are so excited to share our annual report – Tracking Raincoast Into 2023 – with you! Tracking gives you highlights from the year, our science, flagship projects, as well as a peek at what’s in store for the coming year.

Dive into Tracking and learn more about our work safeguarding coastal carnivores in the Southern Great Bear Rainforest tenure. We are currently raising funds to stop commercial trophy hunting in more than a quarter of the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia. Now is a good time to sign up and stay connected to our community of researchers and change-makers.
