July - Pacific Wildlife has purchased a Baba30 classic sailboat for extended coastal expeditions. The boat requires some restoration. Any donation is welcome to defray costs for new upholstery, hull paint, a bimini, halyards, moorage, jib and insurance. We also want to purchase a new spinnaker to use in publicity shots leading up to the International Ornithological Congress in 2018. Contact us for details.

June - A major milestone for Pacific Wildlife is the publication of the BC Breeding Bird Atlas. The Foundation was one of the project partners led by Bird Studies Canada. The atlas includes more than 300 breeding species of birds. The bilingual atlas is a first for Canada. http://www.birdatlas.bc.ca/
