July - Pacific
Wildlife has purchased a Baba30 classic sailboat for
extended coastal expeditions. The boat requires some
restoration. Any donation is welcome to defray costs
for new upholstery, hull paint, a bimini, halyards,
moorage, jib and insurance. We also want to purchase
a new spinnaker to use in publicity shots leading up
to the International Ornithological Congress in
2018. Contact us for details.
June - A major
milestone for Pacific Wildlife is the publication of
the BC Breeding Bird Atlas. The Foundation was one
of the project partners led by Bird Studies Canada.
The atlas includes more than 300 breeding species of
birds. The bilingual atlas is a first for Canada. http://www.birdatlas.bc.ca/

together all of the information gathered on dives

site-specific species lists. Her hope of producing
a website showcasing the underwater diversity of
Indian Arm is a tiny step closer!
Culture is an emerging philosophy that combines
activities such as conservation, green action,
health, local food movement, music, science and more
into a new culture that reconnects to our ancient
natural heritage. Join
