Founded in 1989, the David Suzuki Foundation works to conserve the environment and identify sustainability solutions through science-based research, education and policy. Early projects focused on international conservation where resources could make a bigger impact. Over time with additional funding, the group narrowed its focus to work in Canada addressing fisheries, forestry and the sustainability of the country’s natural resources. The foundation’s headquarters is in Vancouver, and additional offices are located in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto.
The foundation has published landmark guidelines for logging, exposed the hazards of overharvesting cedar and developed annual report cards on Canadian rain forests. Its climate change team promotes energy solutions that include carbon-neutral policies, renewable energy and the carbon tax. The foundation has also worked to protect endangered species, help governments ban pesticides, improve aquaculture and fishery management practices, and build a network for supporting ocean planning and stewardship. A public awareness effort targets the general public with engagement strategies that range from advocacy to household green living tips. Additionally, a widely used guide helps businesses shrink their environmental impact.
Thank you for sharing.
