Pender Island Conservancy Association (PICA) is dedicated to preserving and protecting special places on the Penders for future generations. It assists with conservation covenants and offers educational programs to encourage land stewardship.
We are health care professionals and educators, artists and politicians, farmers and faith workers, foresters and social workers, students and elders. Over 40% of us are senior citizens, and about 60% of us are women. We are concerned citizens. We are broken-hearted.
We want the world to know we are not violent, nor extreme. We are simply co
ncerned humans who are heartbroken by what is happening to our natural world. Heartbroken by the trampling of First Nation rights. Heartbroken that our country has not only failed to become a leader in the green energy sector, but will be a major contributor to climate change, the poisoning of our land and water, and the displacement (and even death) of thousands of our world's citizens.
We use rigorous, peer-reviewed science and community engagement to further our conservation objectives. We call this approach ‘informed advocacy’ and it is unique amongst conservation efforts. We investigate to understand coastal species and processes. We inform by bringing science to decision makers and communities. We inspire action to protect wildlife and their wilderness habitats.
We believe in a safe climate and a better future — a just, prosperous, and equitable world built with the power of ordinary people. Help us get there!
The Center for Whale Research is the leading voice for the gravely endangered Southern Resident killer whales (orcas), having generated over four decades of scientific research and health assessments.

The movement to protect our climate and our communities from the Trans Mountain pipeline and tanker project has incredible momentum. Three Indigenous Nations — Tsleil-Waututh, Squamish and Coldwater — have launched legal challenges. This may be our best shot at stopping this project in its tracks.
We are working to establish legal rights for the Southern Resident Orcas. Under our current legal system humans and corporations have legal standing but animals and ecosystems don’t. We believe that animals and ecosystems should also have legal rights and be able to defend those rights in court.

Winning this kind of ambitious plan will take all of us.
We need to build a massive movement of people to drive our politicians to take action.
