The Pacific Salmon Foundation’s Salmon Watersheds Program works at the interface between science, policy, and communities. We support action for the conservation and management of resilient populations of Pacific salmon and steelhead.

Our team takes a collaborative approach, bringing together people from different organizations, including First Nations, provincial, and federal governments, universities, and the conservation community.

We work with partners to support the development of strategic plans for community-led salmon monitoring and stewardship, and to democratize salmon population and habitat data through our Data Library and through the development of open-access, online tools.
