Paov, we need your help securing a new law for biodiversity

r1 BC needs urgent solutions to protect nature and ecosystem health ...
Dear Paov,

Did you know that British Columbia is home to some of the richest wildlife habitats in North America, and to a staggering three-quarters of Canadian mammal species?

I am writing to you today to highlight West Coast’s recent work towards establishing a new provincial law for biodiversity and ecosystem health. Such new legislation, if co-developed with Indigenous peoples and designed to protect and heal the web of life that sustains us all, could be the key to more responsible environmental decision-making in BC that safeguards healthy lands, waters and communities.

The accumulating impacts of industrial development have taken a toll on biodiversity in BC for far too long – from industrial logging to mining, oil and gas development and many other environmentally-damaging human activities. And of course, many of these impacts are exacerbated by climate change.

West Coast is working on the bold legal solutions that BC needs to address these interconnected issues, and we need your help to do it.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE TODAY Paov, our donors help us build innovative legal solutions to face challenges like this. And today, West Coast Environmental Law is depending on your help to secure an overarching provincial law that makes biodiversity and ecosystem health a priority across all sectors.

In this season of giving, will you consider making a gift that can support this new law?

As one of the staff lawyers leading this project at West Coast, I am asking you to please make a donation to help us create legal pathways to ensure this proposed legislation is co-developed with Indigenous peoples and enacted as soon as possible.
DONATE TODAY Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to support the establishment of this new law. This is a chance to create healthier relationships between humans and the environment in BC.

P.S. Your support not only helps West Coast in our efforts to safeguard biodiversity in BC, it goes a long way in helping us develop other cutting-edge solutions to strengthen environmental laws, support Indigenous nations in revitalizing their own laws, offer legal analysis and research and so much more! Please donate generously this holiday season.

We recognize that our readers are diverse and have unique experiences. Due to the impacts of systemic racism and colonialism, or a variety of other factors affecting financial well-being, some readers may not be able or inclined to make a monetary gift. We welcome your ongoing support and engagement with West Coast in whatever form you choose.
