On October 6th we held our 50th anniversary virtual gala. The live-streamed event was attended by over 350 people and was a huge success for conservation. Throughout the night we honored the past, celebrated achievements and shared our vision for the future.

We raised over $1 million dollars through our campaign for conservation in BC and donations are still coming in.

Some highlights of the night include a USD $1.25 million donation from Pan American Silver through the NAWCA program to fund wetland conservation in BC, the presentation of the Conservation Champion Award to Jan Oudenes and Isobel Ralston of MapleCross, and an exclusive interview with NTBC Vice Chair Dr. Sally Otto on the current state of the biodiversity crisis.

A huge thank you to our sponsors, our auction donors and our campaign donors. You made this possible.
