BC Bear Day at Capilano University

A few years ago we began hosting an International Bear Day with Capilano University and the North Shore Black Bear Society with the intention of drawing more attention to the conservation of bears in all the places they occur. We now have an event with multiple community partners all supporting conservation efforts and initiatives that can benefit British Columbia’s Bears.

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 are eight months into our  campaign and are 65% of the way to our fundraising goal. This acquisition is a tangible way that you can help protect forest lands and build climate resilience!
