Wildsight is a grass-roots organization, recognized for nearly 3 decades as a leader in large-scale conservation, sustainable community initiatives and environmental education in the Kootenay region of British Columbia, including the Columbia and Rocky Mountain areas.
The registered non-profit charitable organization has a vision that is epic in scope, that being a “landscape with free-running streams and rivers of pure water, extensive and connected wild spaces and natural habitat that maintains the full complement of indigenous plants and wildlife. We see healthy human communities thriving with sustainable livelihoods and lifestyles based on a conservation ethic.”
In order to accomplish this goal, Wildsight works with industry, scientists, and all levels of government, including First Nations. They partner with other similar organizations world-wide as well as inspiring at the community level, an awareness of need to steward the land in our backyards.
