Wildlife Programs

Through engaging education and stewardship programs, Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society introduces people to the wonders of the natural world to encourage understanding of and an enduring respect for wildlife in the Pacific Northwest. Based in Vancouver and Victoria, Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society runs wildlife education programs across the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island.

Wildlife Sanctuary

Thanks to the generous legacy gift from Mrs. Cynthia Granfield, Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society became stewards of Manley Farm Bird & Wildlife Sanctuary, a mixed-use 240 acre property of forest, wetland and marine habitat in 1994. Our sanctuary supports thousands of animals including threatened and endangered species like the red-legged frog, barn owl and orca.
