Parks and Protected Areas

Parks and Protected Areas

From mountain top to valley floor, CPAWS-BC seeks protection for our province’s incredible wild places. Our goal is to create large, meaningful protected areas with ecological strength; places that can nurture nature through climate change and shelter biodiversity forever. Canada has one of the oldest and most extensive parks systems in the world. In addition to helping establish new parks and protected areas, CPAWS-BC acts as a watchdog to ensure that our existing parks are well-managed.

Oceans

Oceans

The Pacific coast of Canada hosts a globally significant diversity of marine life and ecosystems, but too often, our oceans are out of sight and out of mind, and they are in serious trouble. We need to create marine “parks” – places where conservation is a priority and humans tread lightly. Learn more about Oceans
Connecting Canadians to Nature

Connecting Canadians to Nature

The smell of forest air, the feel of ocean mist of a warm summer day, the sound of a crackling campfire. There is nothing more special than spending time in the great outdoors. Learn more about Connecting Canadians to Nature
