BC Wildlife Federation
Who We Are
The BC Wildlife Federation is British Columbia's largest and oldest conservation organization. Our 50,000 members are passionately committed to protecting, enhancing and promoting the wise use of the environment for the benefit of present and future generations. Our volunteers and donors give generously of their time and finances to support to a wide range of wildlife conservation programs and projects.
Fish and wildlife populations are declining and we want your help to do something about it.
The BC Wildlife Federation is hosting a series of Town Hall meetings across B.C.

The BC Wildlife Federation has launched an online petition calling on the BC government to increase funding and to set objectives for our fish, wildlife and habitat.
NEW BCWF CONSERVATION APP
Available to iPhone users, the new Conservation App makes it easy to report environmental violations such as: dumping, polluting and destruction of fish or riparian habitat. It is easy for users to take geo-referenced, time-stamped photos or videos and to report issues related to illegal use, or abuse, of natural resources. The app works both in and out of service areas using the phone’s GPS. Reports are sent to a secure server and then forwarded automatically to the appropriate enforcement agency.
DOWNLOAD THE FREE APP and visit the BCWF Mapping Website, which is a public site that will display environmental abuses submitted by users, increasing awareness about the threats facing fish and wildlife around the province.
When a user sends a report, they will have the ability to make the report public or confidential. The goal of making these reports public is to raise awareness to these issues and help prevent further violations. If the user chooses “public”, a moderator will then review the report to determine if it should be placed on the public website.
Personal information of the app user who reported the violation will not be disclosed on the public website.
Registered users may also report violations via the website.
Please note, this app is designed to report infractions related to natural resource use/abuse.
It is not designed to report problem wildlife or human-wildlife conflict.
A version of the app will be created for Android-based mobile operating systems at a later date.
