Register for our webinar series about conservation and resilience in the Gulf Islands

A lunch-and-learn webinar series tackling relevant topics being explored by governments at all levels to address the twin biodiversity and climate crises.

Join us at noon every Wednesday in November for an hour-long expert panel discussion followed by a 30 minute question period to learn more about complex environmental issues and the options for better environmental policy and protection in the Gulf and Howe Sound islands. Speakers include representatives from BC-based organizations like Project Watershed and West Coast Environmental Law; scientific experts from academic institutions including Stanford and Simon Fraser University; and government branches including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Topics we will be exploring

  1. Freshwater availability: Options for maintaining a healthy water supply into the future
  2. Marine & shoreline protection: Impact of docks and overwater structures on Salish Sea habitats
  3. Coastal Douglas-fir forest conservation: Ecoforestry & fire management
  4. Ecological carrying capacity of island ecosystems
  5. Ecological governance in the Islands Trust area

Register to watch live

All sessions will be streamed to our Youtube and Facebook pages and recorded and available for viewing there afterwards for those who are unable to attend the live session.

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.
