The Okanagan Collaborative Conservation Program (OCCP) is a partnership of organizations and government focused on conservation issues in the Okanagan basin of British Columbia, Canada.

OCCP exists in part to act as a hub of information and resources that help our community take action to improve environmental protection in the Okanagan.

Our shared goals include:

  • Wood Frog

    Maintaining regional biodiversity

  • Bighorn sheep on the highway

    Protecting Species at Risk

  • Sagebrush mariposa lily

    Maintaining ecological connectivity
