Who Are We? The Pacific Salmon Foundation was established in 1987 as an independent, non-governmental, charitable organization to protect, conserve and restore wild Pacific salmon populations in British Columbia and the Yukon. Today, PSF galvanizes the breadth of vested stakeholders to support Pacific salmon from stream to estuary to ocean. PSF: • Raises money and makes grants to volunteer community groups that conserve and restore streams across the province. • Manages watershed initiatives in British Columbia that catalyze industry, First Nations, provincial and federal governments, and other non-profits. • Advances science to improve the understanding of factors that limit the abundance of Pacific salmon. • Works with government to prioritize and facilitate strategic salmon conservation in the province.
