Dear valued partners,

We recently learned that there is a fake Facebook page impersonating Tides Canada at https://www.facebook.com/TidesCanadaFoundation. Please be aware of the fake page, and note that Tides Canada will only contact you from @tidescanada.org emails, and that our official social media accounts are:

The security of your data is very important to us. We assure you that this activity on Facebook has not compromised the safety and integrity of Tides Canada’s internal data.

We have reported the Facebook page to authorities and hope that it will be removed shortly. If you also report the fake page (https://www.facebook.com/TidesCanadaFoundation) as spam to Facebook it would be very helpful – thank you!

Living in a world of increasing ‘fake news’ and personal data abuse means that, now more than ever, we need to work together for accountability and integrity online.

Interview with Tara Marsden, Gitanyow Hereditary Chiefs Office

Gitanyow is a community nestled along the Kitwanga River in Northwestern BC. They are represented by the Gitanyow Hereditary Chiefs to establish modern treaties and implement First Nations conservation practices and land use planning for their territory. We interviewed Wilp Sustainability Director for the Gitanyow Hereditary Chiefs Tara Marsden and learned more about the Gitanyow model of long-term conservation planning, the significance of observing and adopting First Nations values and methods in conservation, and the importance of flexible, multi-year granting.
