Vote to help Raincoast win a Land Rover to launch our mobile lab, Tracker

You can vote every day until November 6th! Voting takes less than a minute.

Last year, we launched our Healthy Waters Program to provide a much-needed community-oriented water pollution monitoring capacity, and bring insight into the health of water for people and for the habitats of salmon and whales.

The centerpiece of Healthy Waters is to deploy a mobile lab that would provide consistent, onsite water sampling and analysis in communities and watersheds, and be available for environmental emergencies including floods and oil spills. This mobile lab will be the platform for community based sharing, learning, and training, while generating crucial information on the safety of drinking water, the health of salmon-bearing streams, and the downstream quality of killer whale habitat. 

Raincoast has been selected as a finalist to win a Land Rover Defender 130, through their Defender Service Awards – Environmental and Conservation category – that recognize organizations that are making a critical difference in communities. 

If we win, we are poised for immediate work protecting water alongside our local partners who are best positioned to apply the newly-acquired data to support watershed stewardship.

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.
