About our Work
The mission of the Marmot Recovery Foundation is to recover the wild population of Vancouver Island Marmots. we are one among a number of partners and stakeholders participating in the marmot’s recovery. Other partners include the Province of B.C., landowners TimberWest, Island Timberlands, and Mount Washington Alpine Resort, and the Recovery Team.
Within this partnership, the Foundation supports the implementation of the recovery objectives as established by the Recovery Team and the Recovery Plan through the support of the field team, Mount Washington Tony Barrett Marmot Recovery Centre, research, public awareness, and fundraising programs. In effect, the Foundation delivers the on-the-ground work component as well as funding to support the marmot’s recovery.
