It was in late November when we launched our initiative to purchase and permanently protect the S,DÁYES Flycatcher Forest. We determined the sale price and set our goal to raise $395,000 by April. Now, less than two months into our six month fundraising campaign, we are less than $20,000 away from meeting our target!
We would like to extend our sincerest thanks for the incredible generosity demonstrated by our community of supporters. This level of success would not be possible without you!
But we are not quite there yet; we need another $20,000 to complete the acquisition. If you are able to help us make it to our final goal, please consider a donation. A donation of any size will bring us one step closer!
Once purchased, we will begin the work to protect the land in perpetuity through a conservation covenant and long-term management plan. S,DÁYES Flycatcher Forest will be an ecological preserve, meaning ecological health and preservation of biodiversity will always be our highest priorities.

For 25 years, Raincoast has been furthering biodiversity conservation in BC.

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.
