Remembering Pacific Wild in your will
A legacy to Pacific Wild is a powerful way to invest in a sustainable future for Canada's coast. Legacies honour the memory of a donor, perpetuate their ideals and serve for generations to come. Legacy support Pacific Wild is currently seeking includes but is not limited to:
A year of fieldtrips. The annual Pacific Wild fieldtrip series gives local students the opportunity to travel throughout the Great Bear Rainforest in the company of a Pacific Wild biologist to learn about their environment and their role as environmental stewards. (Estimated cost: $5000) Learn more.
A month or year of Great Bear LIVE. This network of cameras and hydrophones shares the hidden world of the Great Bear Rainforest, and helps people who have never been to the area better understand the threats this pristine ecosystem faces and how they can help protect it. (Estimated cost: $10,000/month, $120,000/year) Experience the program firsthand.
Conservation photography expeditions. Though Pacific Wild regularly works with National Geographic, BBC Planet, CBC and other major film and television companies to capture unique natural history events and animal behaviour - sea wolves, spirit bears, salmon spawns, whale migration, changing ocean temperatures, and more - most of this work is undertaken independently, with the support of donors and sponsors. (Estimated cost: $55,000) Learn about our latest expedition.
Conservation campaigning - and winning. When we start a campaign, we are in it for the long-haul. This type of outreach and advocacy involves substantial and on-going research and documentary efforts, strategic communications strategy, the development and deployment of a variety of digital tools, freedom of information requests, and, sometimes, costly legal action. (Estimated cost: $150,000) Learn about our current core campaigns.
