Explore S’DÁYES Flycatcher Forest: Webinar, video and fundraising update

We are now only $12,000 away from unlocking the $50,000 gift

On December 1st, Raincoast and Pender Islands Conservancy announced a match funding campaign in support of protecting S’DÁYES Flycatcher Forest on North Pender Island: we will be gifted $50,000 if we can raise the same amount with individual donations. 

We are now only $12,000 away from unlocking this $50,000! Can you help bring us to this goal?

We are inviting you to learn more, watch this new 2-minute video to see more of the land we aim to protect and/or join us for our Future Forests Webinar on Wednesday Dec 16 at 6pm! Dr. Erin O’Brien of Pender Islands Conservancy and Shauna Doll of Raincoast will tell the story behind S’DÁYES Flycatcher Forest and what the future holds for the land. 

As a joint initiative, donors can choose to make contributions to the Pender Islands Conservancy or Raincoast. Regardless of which organization receives your donation, it all supports our shared goal. Donating online on either organization’s web page is the easiest way to contribute, but those interested in donating by cheque or e-transfer can contact Project Coordinators for more information. All donors will be issued a tax receipt. 

We hope you can lend your support.

Shauna and Erin.

Become a Raincoaster

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!
