Stanley Park Ecology Society actively promotes ecological conservation and stewardship through its School Programs, various Conservation Programs, and Public Programs.

Through our Public Programs such as EcoWalks, and Eco Rangers, park visitors from Vancouver and beyond expand their environmental awareness and learn how to shrink their environmental footprint.

Our School Programs take environmental education to the classroom and bring school children to Stanley Park, where they learn hands-on about nature and how their actions impact the world around them. Co-Existing With Coyotes teaches communities how to prevent conflicts between humans and wildlife.

Conservation Programs include the Stewardship Program Ivy Busters, working to remove invasive species from Stanley Park; Wildlife Monitoring, of species of special consideration to Stanley Park such as herons and eagles; Research, learning more about the wildlife and habitats of Stanley Park; and Mapping, using GPS (Global PositioningSystems) and GIS (Geographical Information Systems) to map the Stanley Park ecosystem.
