How do we learn during a pandemic?

Teachers and educators - what do you need?

A new school year has just begun and many teachers and students are anxious,  wondering about what lies ahead of them for the year. With this school year being very different from any other, both teachers and students are slowly adjusting to this “new normal” of learning.

Raincoast has also had to adjust how we educate students, shifting from our transformative experiential and place-based learning to predominantly virtual, online engagement. 

With the pilot Coastal Insights online learning series under our belt, we are now seeking to develop a new series that will continue to engage and inspire students with understanding different perspectives on contemporary stewardship and conservation in the Salish Sea.

In order to better respond to community needs we need your input.  Teachers, parents, caregivers, and program providers, can you help us understand what you need most to help educate and engage students safely?  

If you’re interested in getting more support with educating your class or student(s), please fill out a short survey (link below) to help Raincoast shape our next online learning series. 

With our thanks.

Giving to Raincoast enables you to protect what you love most.

For 25 years, Raincoast has been furthering biodiversity conservation in BC. Thanks to your generous donations, among many other accomplishments, we have been able to end commercial trophy hunting of large carnivores in over 38,000 square kilometers of the Great Bear Rainforest, begin acquiring forest land in order to protect threatened Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystems, aid recovery of endangered Southern Resident killer whales by restoring Chinook salmon habitat, and establish a university research lab dedicated to applied conservation science. Strong partnerships are integral to our success.

Our efforts need to be maintained and advanced, now more than ever. As the biodiversity and climate crises collide, your support allows us to continue to make tangible conservation gains. 

Biodiversity protection is the most important gift we can give the next generation. Join us as a Raincoaster today!
