Thank you to our partners

We value partnerships, both inside and outside academia. Productive and rich interactions happen among diverse experiences, knowledge systems, and opportunities to affect change in the real world.
Our work is often informed and enriched by the perspectives and priorities of many collaborators; from the development of hypotheses to the dissemination of research findings. Just as our work benefits from collaboration, our aim is that our scholarship can be useful in the work of our partners.
We are especially excited when collaboration can inform conservation initiatives or policies. This often occurs with non-government organizations, such as with our primary partner, the Raincoast Conservation Foundation, or in partnerships with stewardship departments of Indigenous Nations. Where possible, we believe it is our privilege and responsibility as scholars to contribute capacity to Indigenous governments. In return we are privileged when our Indigenous partners teach us, increasing our own capacity as applied scientists working with communities. In other words, we strive for reciprocal benefits in our partnerships.


We are grateful to have relationships with the following groups and people*:
