Help us record the population of each species to determine herd recruitment and impacts on the animals. These annual counts will teach you about the habitats and behaviours of the species you are studying
Help us record accurate population numbers for every species we see. These forms help shape the focus of our conservation projects
Is burdock an invasive species? What about Canada thistle? Our mentor guides will teach you which plants are native and which are invasive. Then get involved in invasive species removal
Learn how to record the plant diversity in our grazing meadows to ensure our horses don’t have a negative impact on the environment. Discover how this is part of our land management plans for the Chilcotin Ark
We recognize that international travel contributes heavily to climate change and that carbon caused by flying is a major part of that. As an eco-tour company who has nature conservation as one of our Three Pillar values, we mitigate the carbon emitted by our own operations and our guests’ flights from the US and Europe by collaborating with our community forest partner. We do this by growing trees for carbon storage and sequestration, using selective sustainable forest management, by producing value-added carbon storage products, managing the forest for wildlife habitat and using it as an education tool for our guests. This mitigates our own operation and each guest’s carbon footprint. It may be an unconventional approach to the problem. That’s why we like it. It’s about taking responsibility with a hands-on approach, much like our Three Pillar philosophy. Find out more on Community Mill‘s website.
Our guests, students and interns all want to make their contribution to conservation of the wilderness. That’s why 5% of every trip and training program goes towards stewardship in the Chilcotin Ark. This conservation work includes wildlife species population counts, invasive species removal, data collection working with government and other local stakeholders to influence wildlife and habitat management with conservation as its focus. Find out more about our conservation work on the Chilcotin Ark Institute‘s website.
