Wildlife is ecologically important and it is just as important to teach our children about it and about environmental education. Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society gives educational programs throughout schools in British Columbia, reaching over 7,500 individuals annually. We think this is a great way to implement environmental education into the classroom and this is one of the many reasons we proudly support the Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society.

Past & Present
Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society is a registered Canadian charity. Our BN/registration number is 13302 9140 RR0001.
Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society (NWPS) was founded by Sherry Pettigrew, who served as the first Executive Director and continues to hold a position on the NWPS Board of Directors as an Honourary Director. The organization was incorporated in 1987 as a non-profit society, dedicated to preserving healthy wildlife and wildlife systems in northwest North America. Since that time, NWPS continues to earn reputation in the environmental movement as a powerful advocate for wildlife and wildlife habitats. NWPS was a founding member of the Wolf Working Group and fulfilled an advisory role on numerous committees for wildlife preservation. Additionally, NWPS organized conferences, forums, and symposiums that brought together diverse interests in the areas of wildlife management policy, protection and conservation.
Today, NWPS focuses on ‘Preservation through Education’. We achieve our mandate through the development and delivery of a broad series of educational programs and services, newsletters and correspondence, which reach an average of 7,500 individuals annually. Our primary audience has become school aged children. We introduce them to the wonders of the natural world through in-class presentations, nature walks & workshops and stewardship projects and work to inspire them to become environmental stewards.
