On Giving Tuesday, donate to get fish farms out!

Next Tuesday, November 28, is Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving back. Each year, in over 90 countries, millions of dollars are raised to support local organizations.

Year after year, our supporters have stepped up on Giving Tuesday to support our work.

In 2021 and 2022, supporters donated to our volunteer and fieldwork programs. Last year, we raised $4,700 in just 24 hours! Those donations helped us organize our volunteers to take part in native species plantings and invasive species removals, to collect fish and water quality data, and to take part in public events across the Lower Mainland. 

This year, funds from Giving Tuesday will be used to aid in our efforts to get factory fish farms out of B.C.’s coastal waters. We’ve been working on this issue for years and in 2023 we celebrated some big wins alongside our allies with the removal of 15 farms. Next year will be pivotal. The prime minister promised to transition open net-pen salmon farms out of our coastal waters by 2025, and existing federal salmon farm licenses expire in June. 

This year, we are hoping to raise $5,500 to support our campaign to get fish farms out. Can you help us reach our goal?

Your donations will help us build momentum ahead of next June. Funds will help us rally thousands of Canadians to call and email decision-makers, cover investigative costs into government and industry operations, and offset travel costs related to the campaign, such as rallies and court dates. Donations will also support the development of online resources, such as blogs, to educate more British Columbians about the problems fish farms pose to wild salmon, to create more public awareness and to put more pressure on the federal government. 

Can’t make a financial contribution at this time but want to support our work to defend B.C.’s wild salmon? There are other ways you can help!

Start a fundraiser for Watershed Watch.

Sign up to volunteer.

Send an email to the Prime Minister to get fish farms out.

Our team is so grateful to all those who donate, volunteer, send letters, attend our events and share our social media posts. All your actions help advance our work to defend B.C.’s wild salmon. Thank you!
