We use market-based economic solutions to protect the natural environment of Bowen Island. The lands that we protect are selected for their unique ecological features, and are set aside for community use and, sometimes, research. Some lands may be available for hiking or personal enjoyment, while other lands may need to be protected in order to preserve their unique features.
- Land purchases;
- Assisting donors with the gifting process;
- Initiatives such as fund-raising, and creating hiking trails;
- Education and awareness;
- Water protection and conservation;
- Conservation Covenants;
- Public events, such as animal rehabilitation and release, field trips, and work parties for trail building and environment rehabilitation.
A Conservation Covenant is a voluntary agreement to conserve land or special nature features. It represents an agreement between a land owner and another organization or group of organizations that act on behalf of the community.
