Help a hero’s journey

Heroes are important. They give us hope. They offer wisdom. And they show us what is possible when we stand up for what we value — nature, the climate, our communities.

Whether they advocate for boreal caribou in Alberta or stand up against toxic pollution that puts your health at risk, Ecojustice Heroes are on the front lines of the fight for a brighter environmental future. I can’t wait for you to meet them all in the coming weeks.

I think of Misty MacDuffee and Sylvain Archambault — two passionate people who have done so much to give nature a voice. In British Columbia, Misty uses groundbreaking science to protect endangered Southern Resident killer whales. On Canada’s east coast, Sylvain helps lead a coalition with a long history of fighting to defend the Gulf of St. Lawrence from risky offshore drilling.

Thanks to supporters like you, Ecojustice is helping Sylvain and Misty — and all the Ecojustice Heroes — take legal action to deliver lasting solutions to our most urgent environmental problems.

And now, you have the opportunity to double your impact and help us see these legal battles through to the end.

An anonymous Ecojustice donor wants to join forces with you, and has generously pledged up to $50,000 to match, dollar-for-dollar, every donation made before July 1, 2018 in support of our Ecojustice Heroes.


Courageous. Passionate. Committed. Hard-working. Visionary. These qualities aptly describe our Ecojustice Heroes. But no hero can go it alone.

That’s where you come in.

We need to raise $50,000 before July 1, 2018. Your gift will help the Ecojustice team prepare for a fall season packed with litigation, including work with Misty and Sylvain to protect the oceans, species, and biodiversity that sustain all life.

Can I count on your support? Make a gift today to show your support for our Ecojustice Heroes.

Together, let’s continue to build the case for a better earth.
