Licence Plate-Funded Conservation Projects
Parks protect what the natural world has to offer—animals, plants, ecosystems, landscapes – and they foster personal and cultural connections with nature. Funding directed to conservation will help protect natural and cultural values through projects that restore ecosystems, minimize impacts, benefit species at risk, monitor changes to ecosystems, and help understand what is protected within BC’s provincial parks.
