The South Okanagan Similkameen Conservation Program (SOSCP) is a partnership initiative that offers a platform on which a wide array of organizations can come together and combine efforts to conserve the unique biodiversity of the region and protect the diverse habitats in which it thrives.
Founded in 2000, the SOSCP is now made up of more than 50 partner organizations, including federal, provincial and local governments, nonprofits, and First Nations, all working collectively to ensure the protection of one of the most biologically diverse and at-risk regions of Canada.
SOSCP functions to coordinate and facilitate the work of the partners, streamline their conservation efforts, deliver key conservation priorities, raise public awareness, and educate the community on the need for conservation in the region.
With the help of our partners, we strive to make a significant, lasting impact on the quality of all life in the communities we serve.Donate Now
