Garden of the Salish Sea

We inspire students to take responsibility for their environment and natural resources. We teach students to practice watershed friendly habits, engage the participation of their families and communities, and become engaged in scientific study. Today's children are the leaders of tomorrow. 

Endangered Ecosystems Alliance

The organization works primarily at a federal level, as well as augmenting campaigns in the provinces and territories, to support the minimum 17% federal protection target by 2020 for Canada's terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems and for a 50% protection target by 2030 that includes ecosystem-specific targets. The organization will ultimately be working for a federal Endangered Ecosystems Act to protect all native and endangered ecosystems across the country on a much larger scale based on conservation biology principles and traditional ecological knowledge.

Dog's Trust

Our mission is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction.

To achieve this, we rely on the prevention and cure approach: rescue and rehoming work aims to deal with the immediate needs of abandoned and relinquished dogs; preventative measures, such as dog training, neutering, microchipping, education and lobbying are used as longer-term solutions.

Oceanic Preservation Society

We create films, inspire awareness and action through visual displays, and collaborate with partners to champion a humane and sustainable future.
