West Ballenas & Saturnina Island
To protect and preserve natural habitats in beautiful British Columbia.
The Wilson 5 Foundation made a gift to the BC Parks Foundation towards the purchase and protection of Saturnina Island, West Ballenas Island and a 265-acre waterfront parcel on Lasqueti Island.
These islands have fragile ecosystems that are threatened by population growth, pollution, and overfishing. Now, they will be conserved in perpetuity, preserving the largely untouched, natural sanctuaries that are abundant with rare plants and wildlife.
