Wildcoast Ecological Society is a not-for-profit group whose aim is to conduct research, environmental restoration and stewardship activities for degraded ecosystems on the south coast of British Columbia. We strive to fulfill this aim by developing and implementing local restoration projects, involving community members in restoration activities, and by supporting community stewardship projects that protect local ecologically sensitive species and the critical habitats in which they live.
Community Stewardship Activities
Our restoration project at John Hendry (Trout Lake) Park in Vancouver has been a main focus for our community stewardship activities in recent years. Our team of hard working volunteers have put in many hours to turn this area from a field of blackberry into a productive habitat full of plants beneficial to native wildlife and pollinator species! There is still much work to be done in this space, but in the few short years we have worked here, we have seen massive positive changes to the ecology and species diversity present at this site.
We were fortunate to be able to take part in the Wetlands Workforce project in 2021 hosted by BC Wildlife Federation. As a result of this project, several awesome videos were made about the importance of wetlands and wetland conservation!
