Climate change is rapid and intensifying. It’s altering the make-up of our eco-systems, including the habitat and food sources that salmon depend on. Your support will help advance critical marine science research and conservation work to recover key habitat for forage fish – crucial to the survival of Pacific salmon and the marine food web.
Your support of the South Vancouver Island Gala Dinner & Auction will play a critical role in funding programs in conservation, restoration, and salmon science. Purchase South Vancouver Island Gala Dinner & Auction tickets here.
If you would like to learn how you can support the South Vancouver Island Gala with a charitable contribution, gift-in-kind donation or sponsorship, please contact Christina McIntyre at firstname.lastname@example.org.
