We help wildlife that flies, hops, crawls and flutters in Stanley Park by directly tackling their habitat needs through habitat restoration, monitoring and conservation action as well as by providing scientific information that helps Park managers create better management plans.

And we don’t stop there. Every year, we give over 20,000 children and adults opportunities for learning about nature on their doorstep through our weekly public events, school programs, and day camps, or by visiting the Stanley Park Nature House on Lost Lagoon, Vancouver’s only ecology centre. Through our popular volunteering program, more than 1,200 locals learn new skills, improve their CV and meet like-minded people every year.

But we need your help. Your support makes a real difference in Stanley Park for wildlife and people.
