Help Protect the “Yosemite of the North”

The BC Parks Foundation needs your help to reach its goal and create a legacy in Princess Louisa Inlet—one of the most breathtaking fjords in the world.

From Eric Peterson, president of the Tula Foundation and executive director of the Hakai Institute:

“Shortly after establishing the Tula Foundation in 2002 we became involved in our first conservation initiative on the BC Coast. We joined the Nature Conservancy of Canada and the Princess Louisa International Society to finance the buy-back of forestry lands in Princess Louisa Inlet. The success of that project led to other projects, and ultimately to our founding a decade ago of the Hakai Institute, which now funds and operates a wide range of science and education programs across the coast. We are thrilled to see a new commitment by the BC Parks Foundation to build upon our past work at Princess Louisa Inlet.

People often ask us how they can support the work of the Hakai Institute financially. Because we have no organized fundraising effort ourselves, we typically suggest that they instead support the work of our partners. In this case, we wholeheartedly encourage any friends of Hakai to contribute to the BC Parks Foundation’s current campaign for Princess Louisa Inlet. They are closing in on their goal and need to secure funding by August 15 to complete the purchase of the southern side of the inlet. Find out how you can make a difference to this great project.”
