Our Work

CPAWS’ vision is to keep at least half of Canada’s public land and water wild — forever. We focus on protecting large tracts of land, oceans and freshwater so that the species within them can survive and thrive.

Species At Risk

Wildlife in British Columbia are on the frontlines of extinction. We’re working to protect species by safeguarding their habitats.


The West Coast is home to rugged shorelines, deep sea mountains, and a stunning diversity of marine life. We advocate for ocean protection all along British Columbia’s spectacular coastal waters.
