About us


Since 1987 Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society has worked tirelessly is to encourage respect for and preservation of wildlife in the Pacific Northwest. The current mission is achieved through a bird & wildlife sanctuary, as well as education and stewardship programs that reach tens of thousands of people every year. The work inspires a lasting appreciation for and sense of responsibility for wildlife systems.  

Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society is a registered Canadian charity (BN13302 9140 RR0001) and society that introduces British Columbians to the wonders of the natural world. The three main programs are Wildlife in Schools (in-class presentations), Nature Walks & Workshops (outdoor field day) and Youth Environmental Leadership programs (week-long training and stewardship sessions). They are offered free of charge to inner-city school children and at-risk youth in low income areas to ensure marginalized kids are given an equal opportunity to develop environmental leadership skills.

NWPS is stewards of Manley Farm Bird & Wildlife Sanctuary, which is a 240 acre property on ALR land on Vancouver Island. The property is comprised of a variety of habitats and uses of land. Mainly it provides a safe habitat for wildlife in the area, including some listed and endangered species such as the northern red-legged frog and barn swallow. There are many projects underway including a wetland restoration, sustainable farming plan development, infrastructure maintenance and education programs.

The main NWPS website is currently down but can normally be accessed at www.northwestwildlife.com.
