From its deep forests and diverse wetlands to its picturesque seashores, Stanley Park is home to many native organisms. Ecologically important, the Park’s habitats must be protected to support native flora and fauna. In the face of stressors like off-trail use, pollution, invasive species, and climate change, SPES works to support Park ecosystems through stewardship programs and research projects.
