Our Mission

Clayoquot Action is a Tofino-based conservation society. For over thirty years Clayoquot Action founders Dan Lewis and Bonny Glambeck have been working to protect this awe-inspiring place. Together with local volunteers and backed online by people around the world, we run strategic, people-powered campaigns to help Clayoquot Sound remain one of the most beautiful places left on earth.
