The mission of the Sierra Club of British Columbia is to inspire generations to confront climate change so families, communities and the natural world can prosper together. Through campaigns and education programs, the organization raises awareness, provides opportunities for engagement and supports the development of new leaders in the field of social and environmental change.
Projects in the Flathead River Valley and Great Bear Rainforest, which contain some of the most biodiverse ecosystems in North America, aim to secure places of wildlife refuge and halt old growth logging through conservation and government regulation. In the Peace River Valley, an alliance of First Nations representatives, conservation groups and the general public is working to prevent construction of a 60-meter high dam that would flood farmland, threaten hunting and fishing rights of First Nation people and cut off a key wildlife migration corridor. The Wildlife Salmon Program, a past campaign funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, focused on conserving the biological and genetic diversity of British Columbia’s wild salmon population through policy enforcement, fishery eco-certification and partnerships with First Nation communities.
Thank you for sharing.
