Our mission is to provide thoughtful leadership in the conservation, restoration, and enhancement of Pacific salmon and their ecosystems through strategic partnerships and leveraged use of resources.
The Pacific Salmon Foundation, founded in 1987, is a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to the conservation and restoration of wild Pacific salmon and their habitats in B.C. and the Yukon.
For us, it’s salmon first, salmon always and we never go it alone. We work with First Nations, Government, ENGO partners, industry and all people for salmon who share the desire to save and restore these iconic species.
At Pacific Salmon Foundation it is salmon first, and salmon always. We work with all members of the ‘salmon community’ to advance our collective efforts, promote awareness of this keystone species, and guide the sustainable future of wild Pacific salmon and their habitat.
We are a catalyst – working to accelerate the recovery of wild Pacific salmon. We do this through our annual grant-making program, supporting thousands of community-led projects, to our major research and restoration projects, in partnership with First Nations, fellow NGO’s, stewards and Government.
As a vocal advocate for salmon, we help action priorities that support the conservation of this vital ecological resource.
Through education, partnership and collaboration, we can bring them back and uphold BC’s dynamic freshwater, marine and forest ecosystems.
The Pacific Salmon Foundation (PSF) has evolved in response to the state of salmon—this includes an expansion of research, climate adaptation initiatives and applied action to support Pacific salmon conservation. Given the challenged conservation state of many Pacific salmon stocks, we are focused on where we can make the most meaningful difference for Pacific salmon.
Our goals are to: Maintain existing wild Pacific salmon populations; Rebuild salmon stocks of conservation concern and their habitats; Advance salmon enhancement programs that support conservation; Increase public education, involvement and support for ongoing community engagement.
