Wilson 5 Foundation Pledges $100 Million to Preserve and Protect British Columbia's Natural Spaces
We started in 2018 with a big, hairy audacious goal: For BC to have the greatest system of parks and protected areas in the world. You, the park support community, delivered in spades. With your tireless support and commitment, 15 beautiful places were protected, millions of observations of nature were recorded, hundreds of thousands of visitors were engaged in responsible and safe park enjoyment, and a park prescription program was launched across Canada.

But this is a critical decade to address climate change and biodiversity loss. We need to keep going. We need to go big. Really BIG.Today, we shared a game-changing announcement.

BC's parks are quite simply wonders. They are places of majesty and beauty. They are gathering places for families and communities. They are engines of our economy in attracting millions of tourists to our province. And they are sanctuaries to millions of plants and animals, creating the biodiversity that gives British Columbians the clean air and clean water so vital to our healthy existence.”
