Welcome to our Vancouver Island office! The office in Victoria was established in 1989 so that we could be front and centre at the province's parliament. Our focus at that time was to defend Vancouver Island’s unique wild places and old-growth giants from logging activities, in favour of permanent protection. Since then, we have led many successful campaigns to protect our wilderness, including the Sea to Sea Green Belt, the Sooke Hills and Carmanah Valley.
Our Victoria office has become a strong part of the Island activist community in Victoria and our staff are on the ground throughout the Island working hand-in-hand with First Nations and local communities to protect the Island's old-growth, endangered species and special marine ecosystems. In the 2000s we ramped up campaign activities on the Island to fight climate change at its root causes and promote alternative energy sources and a transition to a just economy. With four full-time staff members, a door-to-door canvass team and a bunch of volunteers, we are a leading grassroots environmental group on the Island.
