We’re a community

The marine conservation community of British Columbia has another way to have its voice heard—the Marine Conservation Caucus (MCC).

We’re scientists and collaborators

Comprised of nine core conservation groups, the MCC is an officially recognized stakeholder in consultations with Fisheries and Oceans Canada. While the MCC does not replace the activities of any conservation group, it does provide unique opportunities for the NGO sector to work together, share information and voice its concerns at official consultation tables.

This website provides an overview of the MCC’s background, mandate, structure and activities. We are always looking for ways to increase communication and effectiveness with the broader conservation community and appreciate feedback on how to maximize this role of the MCC, and ensure that marine species and ecosystems are being protected.
