Project Details

What We Need
  • Review of up to 20 pages of copy for grammar, style, tone, and consistency
  • Advice on how to write effective copy going forward
Additional Details

We have a long report (over 20 pages) focused the Fraser River Estuary and the investments made in habitat restoration in the last 10 years (2009 to 2019) and where the money has come from and where it's gone to.

The report is over 20 pages, but we can choose the 20 most important pages or you can edit more than 20. We are open!

What We Have In Place
  • We have a draft of the report in google docs.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $1,792 , allowing us to invest in an artist to make the report visually appealing!

This report is intended to be a practical resource for DFO and government to see the gaps in funding habitat restoration.

Our Mission

Raincoast is a team of conservationists and scientists empowered by our research to protect the lands, waters and wildlife of coastal British Columbia.

What We Do

Since 1990, we have been making progress toward our habitat and wildlife protection goals. Our on-the-ground presence has given us a deep-rooted understanding of BC's vast coastline. We work in partnership with scientists, First Nations, local communities and NGOs to build support for decisions that protect marine and rainforest habitat on BC's coast.
