Raincoast is a team of conservationists and scientists empowered by our research to protect the lands, waters and wildlife of coastal British Columbia.

We use rigorous, peer-reviewed science and community engagement to further our conservation objectives. We call this approach informed advocacy and it is unique amongst conservation efforts.

We investigate to understand coastal species and processes. We inform by bringing science to decision makers and communities. We inspire action to protect wildlife and their wilderness habitats.
