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.

You can help

Raincoast’s in-house scientists, collaborating graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professors make us unique among conservation groups. We work with First Nations, academic institutions, government, and other NGOs to build support and inform decisions that protect aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the wildlife that depend on them. We conduct ethically applied, process-oriented, and hypothesis-driven research that has immediate and relevant utility for conservation deliberations and the collective body of scientific knowledge.

We investigate to understand coastal species and processes. We inform by bringing science to decision-makers and communities. We inspire action to protect wildlife and wildlife habitats.
