SPEC stands in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en
For fifty years, the Society Promoting Environmental Conservation has operated within, and benefitted from, the traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. SPEC recognizes that these lands and waters have never been ceded, surrendered or in any way transferred to another government. As individuals and as an organization we are committed to finding ways to better support Indigneous peoples in their fight for self-determination and in the protection of the lands and waters that so many of us call home.
