How we make a difference
British Columbia Conservation Foundation was founded and incorporated under the Society Act of British Columbia in 1969 to enhance fish and wildlife populations and their habitats through the implementation of environmental conservation projects. We are a registered charity dedicated to the conservation and stewardship of British Columbia’s species and biodiversity.
We promote the conservation of fish and wildlife in the Province of British Columbia through education, collaboration and habitat acquisition. We do this by managing projects on behalf of various rights and stakeholders and also run our own programs and initiatives to support conservation in BC.

We help strengthen capacity within other groups, communities and organizations through providing assistance and expertise in project implementation.
We continue to support conservation efforts at the local level through our own programs to enhance and conserve fish and wildlife and their habitats.
