Who We Are

Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society (NWPS) is a registered Canadian charity (BN13302 9140 RR0001) and BC Society (S-22507). Since 1987 NWPS has been preserving wildlife in the Pacific northwest. Our mandate is Preservation Through Education. We focus on providing free wildlife education and stewardship programs to disadvantaged people throughout British Columbia. While we work mainly with children and youth, we work with all kinds of groups including but not limited to public and private school classes,  summer camps, youth groups, boy/girl scouts, retirement homes, First Nations groups, and new immigrants. By fostering a connection with nature, and developing the imperative leadership skills and passion in young people especially, we are ensuring the natural world will continue to be preserved for its own intrinsic value and for the benefit of all.


What We Do

Education Programs
We offer three main wildlife education programs: indoor wildlife workshops, outdoor nature workshops, and week-long environmental leadership development programs. Programs are delivered mainly to elementary schools, senior centres and special interest groups.
Wildlife Sanctuary
We are stewards of Manley Farm Bird & Wildlife Sanctuary, a mixed-use 240 acre property of forest, wetland and marine habitat. Our sanctuary supports thousands of animals including threatened and endangered species like the red-legged frog, barn owl and orca.
Environmental Stewardship
We do a lot of environmental stewardship as part of our education programs, out in the community with the general public, and in partnership with other organizations. Some of the activities we do include tree-planting, invasive species removal, and clean-ups.
