Raincoast Conservation Foundation

Investigate. Inform. Inspire.

Raincoast is a team of scientists and conservationists empowered by our research to safeguard the land, waters, and wildlife of coastal British Columbia. 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.

Our vision for coastal British Columbia is to protect the habitats and resources of umbrella species
