Raincoast Conservation Foundation

Home / Raincoast Conservation Foundation

Raincoast is a not-for-profit research and public education organization that relies on the support of donors, sponsors, and volunteers. Comprised of a research-driven team of conservationists and scientists, the organization aims to protect the lands, waters and wildlife of coastal British Columbia. Protection of the habitats and resources of umbrella species is a primary focus, helping to ensure survival of all species and ecological processes that exist at different scales. They work in close partnership with scientists, First Nations, local communities and non-government organizations to build support for decisions that protect marine and rainforest habitat on BC’s coast. Raincoast is always seeking youth volunteers – see their website under About/Get Involved. Youth interested in art can make connections to several artists that took up paintbrushes and carving tools in an effort to protect Canada’s fragile Raincoast. Raincoast has also hosted unique opportunities to youth – including providing the chance for a young student to participate in gathering scientific data on their research vessel.
