Facilitating the protection and restoration of endangered species and ecological communities on BC’s South Coast

About The SCCP

The South Coast of BC: 2 million + people (and growing) vying for space in one of BC's most biodiverse regions!

The SCCP was established in 2005 by government and non-government organizations to fill coordination gaps between various levels of government, conservation groups, land use interests and local communities to conserve species and ecological communities at risk. The SCCP plays a vital role in assisting various stakeholders in navigating the complexities around species at risk. This is accomplished through a range of activities, including: workshops on guidelines and stewardship practices, networking through social media and supporting on-the- ground applied science on priority species and their habitats. Keep up to date through our SCCP News page.

The South Coast region is a hotspot of biodiversity with over 260 species provincially and federally listed as threatened or endangered. 

One of BC's most biodiverse regions - with a population 2.5 million and growing.

The SCCP focus is on ecological communities and the species at risk they support.The geographic boundaries follow three forest districts – Chilliwack, Squamish and Sunshine Coast which includes a number of Regional Districts (Fraser Valley, Metro Vancouver, Powell River, Sunshine Coast and Squamish - Lillooet).

Program streams are focused around engagement and dialogue, integrating conservation science and First Nations Traditional Ecological Knowledge iand stewardship practices. 

Does the SCCP oversee implementation of species at risk legislation and regulations, or get involved in violations? No, the SCCP is not a regulatory authority and does not provide legal expertise or undertake investigative actions regarding damage to habitat or violations under the various species and habitat protection laws. The SCCP's role is to provide information to practitioners, land use interests and the public so they can find out more about, or connect to, regulatory authorities, legislation, or guidelines around species and habitat protection.

What do endangered species and spaces mean to the people of the South Coast? Check out our Learning Outcomes video and this presentation by our Program Coordinator done at the Beaty Museum.
