T. Buck Suzuki Environmental Foundation is a British Columbia nonprofit working to protect fish habitat, prevent pollution and promote sustainable fisheries. The organization has led numerous campaigns to halt pulp mill and sewage pollution, end destructive logging practices and prevent water diversions. It also has conducted marsh reclamation projects and established a riparian nursery dedicated to rearing native plants for stream restoration. Offices are located across British Columbia in in Vancouver, Victoria and Prince Rupert.

The foundation focuses on protecting fish habitat and preventing pollution by stopping the impacts of oil spills, pipelines, tankers and energy projects on sensitive land. Other priorities include transitioning salmon farming to land-based closed containment systems, supporting multi-trophic aquaculture, and engaging commercial fisherman in integrated ocean management and marine use planning. The organization has published two popular educational guides for mariners, one on running commercial vessels to minimize harm and another on commercial vessel fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction, and has launched the OceanSmart app.
