⏰ The future of biodiversity in BC is

r1 End this #GivingTuesday by protecting the environment through law ...
Dear Paov,

I know that #GivingTuesday can be overwhelming with so many worthy causes reaching out for donations.

That is why I wanted to make sure you had the chance to see Gavin’s email below from earlier today.

Paov, with your help, we can build a new, overarching BC law for biodiversity that removes barriers to conservation across a range of different BC laws and safeguards the web of life that sustains healthy communities, cultures and economies.

A gift of any size – big or small – counts! Your donation to West Coast can also:
  • Help us develop other cutting-edge solutions to strengthen environmental laws
  • Work to protect the ocean with a strong network of marine protected areas (MPAs)
  • Hold fossil fuel companies accountable for the harm caused by their products
  • And so much more to protect and defend the environment through law!

Please consider making a donation to West Coast Environmental Law on this day of giving!

With gratitude,

Jessica Clogg
Executive Director & Senior Counsel

Dear Paov,

Wildlife, forests, and other ecosystems across British Columbia are under threat from multiple forms of human development.

These past few weeks, we have been calling on all West Coast supporters to take action in support of our efforts to establish a new law that will chart a path for protecting biodiversity and ecosystem health. Today – on #GivingTuesday – we need your help to do it.

We are so grateful for your interest in our work, and today, we are asking you to please take your support of West Coast Environmental Law to the next level. Please consider making a small gift today that can support this new law. A donation of any size will help!
Unlike our current fragmented patchwork of laws aimed at enabling resource development, new biodiversity legislation should focus on restoring healthy relationships between humans and the natural world, grounded in recognition and respect for the inherent jurisdiction of Indigenous peoples.

On this #GivingTuesday, your donation can help us advance this important initiative, which was a key recommendation put forward by the province’s independent Old Growth Strategic Review Panel – and which the BC government has committed to implement.

With your donation today, West Coast lawyers, including myself, can work to shape new provincial legislation that will protect biodiversity in BC, remove legal barriers to nature conservation across a range of existing provincial laws and uphold the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
DONATE NOW This new biodiversity law is a crucial opportunity to create healthier relationships between humans and the environment in BC. A donation of any size counts – the future of biodiversity in BC is depending on you!
