CPAWS-BC’s very own Director of Terrestrial Conservation, Chloe O’Loughlin, appeared before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development at the Delta Vancouver Airport in Vancouver, BC this morning. It was a unique and fantastic opportunity for CPAWS-BC to lend its voice in the ongoing dialogue on conservation in BC! In January 2012, The Committee passed a motion to undertake a study to provide recommendations to the Minister of the Environment on the development of a National Conservation Plan...

One of my favourite things about working at CPAWS is getting to talk to the public about BC’s amazing wilderness - from the rugged shores and seabird colonies of the Scott Islands, to the rare and threatened grasslands of the South Okanagan, and the unique deep-sea glass sponge reefs found nowhere else in the world but right here in BC. Last weekend, Elyse Curley, our Terrestrial Conservation Coordinator, and I were fortunate enough to travel to Vancouver Island to represent CPAWS at the Pacific Ecology and Evolution Conference (PEEC). Our adventure started when we climbed aboard the M.V. Frances Barkley which ferried us and about 100 students down the inlet from Port Alberni to Bamfield on the west coast of Vancouver Island...

Ne’ah, formerly known as the Horseranch Range, is a north-south range spanning 40 kilometres, where, as the Kaska say, the animals ‘go to get fat’. This protection totals nearly 600,000 hectares...

Since the beginning of October, I have had the pleasure of being the Marine Climate Change Intern at CPAWS-BC. Although today is my last day, I have a smile on my face as I reflect upon my time here. The first day of my internship started with travelling to the community of Masset, in Haida Gwaii. Visiting Haida Gwaii and Prince Rupert during a week of travelling with Sabine Jessen (CPAWS National Manager of Oceans and Great Freshwater Lakes Program) was a highlight of my internship...

We have three new interns at CPAWS this January and we're excited that they joined the team! Nicolas Loquet has come on board as the Community Engagement Coordinator. He'll be working with our communications and fundraising team of volunteers to ensure the smooth running of the outreach and fundraising initiatives. He will update our website, assist with social media and support campaign needs. The future of BC's conservation movement relies on the next generation of children and youth - if they're not connected to the great outdoors, there will be no one here to defend BC's wild. Jordan Tam will be working at CPAWS as our "Deep Personal Relationships with Nature" BRITE Intern from UBC...
