After 10 years of work and partnership with the Kaska First Nation, we are immensely pleased that a new provincial park, ‘Ne’ah’, and special management area, Gu Cha Duga, have been established in northern BC.

The first day of my internship started with travelling to the community of Masset, in Haida Gwaii.

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.

Last Wednesday, CPAWS-BC had the privilege of attending Vancity’s enviroFund celebration at the Vancouver Maritime Museum. Thanks to Vancity, CPAWS-BC has received funding to help protect sensitive ecosystems on Bowen Island, an important project we couldn’t complete without their support. It was a fantastic evening – we were able to learn about other award recipients’ projects through interesting presentations and plenty of mingling. In total, Vancity gave out more than half a million dollars to 15 organizations – an impressive amount of funding that we learned will all go to excellent use!
