We envision a landscape with free-running streams and rivers of pure water, extensive and connected wild spaces and natural habitat that maintains the full complement of indigenous plants and wildlife. We see healthy human communities thriving with sustainable livelihoods and lifestyles based on a conservation ethic.
Wildsight works locally, regionally and globally to protect biodiversity and encourage sustainable communities in Canada’s Columbia and Rocky Mountain regions.
Wildsight’s approach is unique. We not only work to shape and influence land-use decisions, but we guide practice and steward change on the ground. We work with industry, scientists and all levels of government, including First Nations. We partner with other local, provincial, national and international conservation organizations to achieve our goals.
Since 1987, Wildsight has been recognized as a leader in large-scale conservation, sustainable community initiatives and environmental education. While our work focuses on the Kootenay region, and has received recognition from the communities in which we work, we are renowned throughout the province and across Canada for our effective conservation programs, excellence and innovation in all that we do.
At our heart, we are a grassroots organization, harnessing our power from the people whose lives affect and are affected by our work. We strive to inspire a conservation ethic in our children and in our communities so that the future leaders of tomorrow will be equipped to deal with the challenges of sustainability.
With increasing demands on our natural world, re-localizing is critical. Wildsight works collaboratively with our five autonomous branches in Creston, the Elk Valley, Golden, Invermere and Kimberley/Cranbrook to create sustainable communities in which both humans and nature can thrive. Wildsight is a registered charity and our five branches are separate non-profit societies.
Our charitable number is 134892496RR0001. We issue tax receipts for all donations.
Our BC Societies number is S-22548.
