PRO-TIPS: Volunteering at Pacific Wild

Apr 10, 2016
Pacific Wild

Max Bakken and Pete Thicke hard at work for Great Bear LIVE, back when Pete was a volunteer.

The volume of inquiries we receive about volunteering and working at Pacific Wild is truly inspiring - there are so many people out there ready to take action for the Great Bear Rainforest.

Over the years we’ve had the privilege of working with 100s of volunteers, and in honour of Canada's National Volunteer Week (April 10-16), we're dedicating a series of blogs to celebrating their contributions, and sharing what made these relationships so successful for the volunteer and for Pacific Wild.

Between now and the 16th, we’ll introduce you to five exceptional people, starting with Marisaan artist who challenged herself to raise $5000 for Pacific Wild in just 100 days - and succeeded! Then there are folks like Pete (pictured above) and Elissa who turned out to be such great volunteers we hired them on at the first opportunity. Last but not least, we have the pros, like Alan and Megan, who are sharing the skills they use at their day-jobs to help us protect B.C.'s bears and wolves. 

We hope that by sharing more about how they each came to volunteer, what they've gotten out of it, and why we are such big fans of their work, we'll give you a better sense of what volunteering at Pacific Wild is like, and how you might fit in the next time you have some time to give. 

Stay tuned to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to catch the posts as they come online. Alternatively, you can sign-up to our volunteer list, where we'll be sending a summary of the posts early next week.
