The British Columbia Conservation Foundation (BCCF) was founded and incorporated under the Society Act of British Columbia in 1969, by the Directors of the BC Wildlife Federation, to contribute significantly to the perpetuation and expansion of fish and wildlife populations through the efficient implementation of projects in the field. We are a federally registered charity dedicated to the conservation and stewardship of British Columbia's ecosystems and species.

Our Mission

To promote and assist in the conservation of the fish and wildlife resources of the Province of British Columbia through the protection, acquisition and enhancement of fish and wildlife populations and habitat.  We do this by managing projects on behalf of key stakeholders, and reinvesting funds in excess of expenditures into programs and initiatives that support these endeavours.

Commitment

The BC Conservation Foundation recognizes the value of, and necessity for, local linkages and partnerships.  It is our hope that all of our clients will maintain their confidence in the organization as a whole, and also continue to provide the BC Conservation Foundation with revenue-generating opportunities and referrals.

We will build capacity in other conservation organization through project support.

We will promote our organization fully to support the efforts of local conservation organizations in their efforts to enhance and conserve fish and wildlife populations and habitat.

What We Do

Our mission to make a positive contribution to the conservation of BC's fish, wildlife and habitat is through the provision of administrative, project management and technical field services. We work closely both with partners and independently to undertake projects in fish, wildlife habitat inventories, research, enhancement, restoration, resource stewardship and environmental education. With our provincial network of biologists and technicians, expertise in fundraising and capabilities in partner building, we bring people and resources together to achieve conservation success.

Providing quality, cost-effective services via strategic partnerships with all levels of government, industry, non-governmental organizations, private groups, educational institutions and First Nations we have implemented over 7000 conservation projects since 1986.

We can provide our partners or clients with project management services for the administration, implementation and delivery of conservation projects. We have experienced personnel that manage projects through our regional offices in Kamloops, Surrey, Nanaimo and Williams Lake. Our Head office is located in Cloverdale (Surrey).

Regional Managers are responsible for client relations, contract negotiation, proposal writing, sub-contracting and are involved in all aspects of project management. Each regional office maintains a resume database of skilled personnel available to work on local projects and is equipped to accommodate project employees. Our Head Office is responsible for overall financial control and provide administrative support, including payroll and financial accounting services. This office also acts as the hub of the BCCF Intranet, with centralized electronic data distribution, web services and email accounts.

Our expertise is the efficient management of limited resources and our mission is the conservation and enhancement of forestry, fish, wildlife and their habitats.
