During an extreme heatwave last summer, B.C. Coroners Service said that more than 600 British Columbians died. Once again, this year, we’re experiencing rising temperatures from the island to the interior.
Out of control wildfires, heatwaves and a species extinction crisis feel like our ‘new normal’. But it doesn’t have to be.
Nature has the power to mitigate the worst impacts of climate change. Protecting 25% of BC’s lands and waters by 2025, followed by 30% by 2030, is a ready-made climate action that can be part of a larger plan. And, it would support the conservation vision of First Nations who are leading efforts on the ground.

B.C. residents deserve real numbers on nature protection
From the gas pump to the grocery shelves, inflation is everywhere. As Canada’s inflation rate hits a 31-year high, British Columbians everywhere are feeling the squeeze.
But there’s another unlikely place we’re seeing inflation, and as conservation organizations who care about nature, we want the public to know: B.C.’s claims on nature protection are inflated.
