October - Pacific WildLife is pleased to announce
that we will be the lead organization for the new Vancouver
International Bird Festival to
coincide with the 27th
International Ornithological Congress 19-26
August 2018 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
September - The Board of Pacific WildLife is pleased
to welcome Dr. Cliff Robinson as our newest Fellow.
Dr. Robinson brings over 20 years of research and
conservation of small fish in marine ecosystems.
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/
