About us

For more than 30 years, Georgia Strait Alliance has been the leading advocate for the protection of the Salish Sea and all the creatures that call this region home.

Our vision

A Salish Sea teeming with life, where thriving and just communities live in balance with the environment.

Protecting biodiversity

We protect endangered species such as the Southern Resident orca and wild salmon and their habitat, by using advocacy, legal action and grassroots organizing, and by reducing threats from sources such as oil spills, wastewater and industrial expansion.

Supporting climate action

We work to support communities that protect each other and build a climate-resilient future based on sustainable energy, by supporting collective action on issues of local concern.

Promoting clean boating

Clean Marine BC, our eco-certification program for boating facilities, and our clean boater outreach program support recreational boaters and the marinas that serve them in reducing the impact of their operations on the Salish Sea.

Cause

The Salish Sea is one of the most biologically rich marine ecosystems in the world. It is home to some of the planet’s most awe-inspiring creatures – orca and humpback whales, giant octopus, great blue heron and a diver’s paradise of glass sponge reefs to name a few. It is a place of spectacular beauty, with soaring mountains, remote inlets, vibrant islands, and abundant watersheds, stewarded for millennia by coastal First Nations and loved and relied on by communities today.

But the Salish Sea is a region under threat. Population growth, urbanization and climate change are putting increased pressures on both ecosystems and communities.

Georgia Strait Alliance is dedicated to the protection and restoration of this place that almost nine million people and 3000 marine species call home. Our approach centres and takes its lead from communities, and reflects that we cannot achieve healthy ecosystems without also supporting healthy communities. This approach is reflected in our mission: Grounded in environmental justice, we mobilize and support collective action to protect the Salish Sea region.

We hope you will Explore the Salish Sea with us through your support of this raffle! Together, we are stronger, and we can and will protect this special place, where we live, work and play.   Thank you!
