2016 Success

Grantee:  Pacific Wild and Raincoast

Result: one oil pipeline halted

We made grants to Pacific Wild and Raincoast Conservation Society to organize opposition to the proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline, which would have run through the heart of British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest. We had previously funded organizations that successfully protected 2.5 million acres of land in this coastal temperate rainforest. In November, the Canadian federal government rejected the Northern Gateway proposal, and vowed to impose an oil tanker ban along BC’s north coast.
