About Us

Pacific Wild is a non-profit located in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest on Denny Island. We are committed to defending wildlife and their habitat on Canada’s Pacific coast by developing and implementing conservation solutions in collaboration with First Nations communities, scientists, other organizations and individuals. Pacific Wild supports innovative research, public education, community outreach and awareness to achieve the goal of lasting environmental protection in the lands and waters of the Great Bear Rainforest.

Our team pursues projects and activities through three main initiatives in order to achieve our conservation goals: OceanLand and Community.

Pacific Wild Alliance is a non-profit society registered in British Columbia. It is not a charitable organization, which allows us to engage in advocacy work. However, PWA partners closely with the Great Bear Education and Research Project (formerly known as the Pacific Wild Initiative) at Tides Canada Initiatives Society, which is a Canadian charitable organization. The Great Bear Education and Research project (GBEAR) carries out research and education work on the central coast and beyond.  GBEAR is a partner in Pacific Wild's Great Bear Sea Hydrophone Network, Great Bear LIVE, SEAS Community Initiatives as well as other efforts to elevate awareness of wildlife and habitat issues in this region.
