Biodiversity improves the health of Vancouver and the people who live here.
Biodiversity is the richness of plant and animal species, their habitats, and the ecological processes that sustain them. Biodiversity includes Vancouver’s marine and terrestrial ecosystems.
Our Biodiversity Strategy PDF file (5 MB) aims to increase the amount and quality of Vancouver’s natural areas to support biodiversity and increase access to nature.
Together with you and our partners, we are committed to supporting and celebrating biodiversity by greening our operations, and restoring forest, wetland, and shoreline habitats throughout the city.
