Climate change is the defining issue of our times. It provides the context and motivation for our work.

Defending nature

Nature needs time and space to adapt as climate change disrupts species and ecosystems. We work to protect B.C.’s forests, watersheds and at-risk species to prepare for climatic shifts already underway. Read more about our campaigns in the Flathead River Valley, the Great Bear Rainforest, and Vancouver Island and the south coast.

Climate change also threatens our agricultural production and the feasibility of relying on global food distribution. Read more about our campaign to protect Peace River Valley agricultural land and wildlife habitat threatened by the Site C megadam.

Stabilizing our climate

The science tells us that, to have any chance of keeping global warming below 2⁰C, 80 per cent of the world’s fossil fuels must stay in the ground.

Read more about our campaigns against the Kinder Morgan pipeline and tanker proposal as well as our work on the Petronas fracked gas plant and other LNG projects.

Climate action

We work to support both government and B.C. communities to take meaningful climate action. Learn about our climate solutions campaigning and read The Future Is Here, our ten-point plan for post-carbon prosperity in B.C.

Do you want to get more involved in the movement to save B.C.’s wild places and stop climate polluting fossil fuel projects? Do you share our love of nature? Do you want to have fun and meet like-minded people?
