Western Bluebirds once thrived in the Garry Oaks meadows of south-eastern Vancouver Island. Sadly, these beautiful birds were lost as Garry Oak meadows, and the dead trees the Bluebirds relied on were lost to development.

Our goal is to bring Western Bluebirds back to Vancouver Island. By restoring bluebird habitat, building nestboxes, and re-introducing bluebirds from healthy populations in Washington State, we can recover a small bit of our lost biodiversity.

This ambitious project relies on the support of dedicated volunteers, partner organizations, and donations from people like you.

Find out more about our work, and how you can get involved.

Bring Back the Bluebirds is a project of the British Columbia Conservation Foundation in partnership with the Cowichan Valley Naturalists.
