Raincoast Conservation Society

Mission Statement

Raincoast Conservation Society

Founded in 1990, Raincoast Conservation Society is a non-profit research and public education organization. Raincoast works with scientists, First Nations, local communities and Non-governmental Organizations to build support for decisions that protect marine and rainforest habitat on BC’s central and north coast.

British Columbia’s coast continues to face a variety of environmental threats, including industrial clear cut logging, mining, trophy hunting of large carnivores, fish farming and commercial over-fishing of wild salmon stocks, and a lack of government enforcement of the few existing environmental regulations.

 
PROJECTS

  • Producing public educational materials including books, film documentaries, and scientific reports.
  • Conducting scientific field research, including studies on coastal wolves, grizzly bear habitat, and wild salmon to develop science-based conservation plans for BC’s coast.
  • On-the-ground monitoring, photography and videography of threatened river valleys.
  • Mobilizing public support throughout North America and Europe using lectures and slide shows, films and photography, radio, and television media.
  • Land acquisition projects that protect key wilderness and culturally significant areas.
  • Supporting sustainable economic opportunities for coastal communities.
