History has shown that when action is taken to restore and protect habitat, fish can thrive and even declining populations can rebound. Preserving our fish stocks means working hard to protect habitat.
That's the vision behind the T. Buck Suzuki Environmental Foundation.
Since its establishment, it has been involved in numerous habitat-related campaigns, including efforts to halt pulp and sewage pollution, destructive logging practices and water diversions. Working with other organizations, the Foundation played a leadership role in the campaign that led to the cancellation of the Kemano Completion Project on the Nechako River - a development that threatened millions of salmon in the Fraser watershed. In addition to its campaigns, the Foundation has initiated marsh reclamation projects and established a riparian nursery dedicated to rearing native plants for stream restoration.
The Foundation relies on donations from people who are concerned about protecting our streams and our ocean. We are a registered charity and all those who donate will receive a charitable tax receipt. Donations can be made online or sent to the Foundation at: First Floor - 326 12th Street, New Westminster, B.C. V3M 4H6.
