Our Partners

Partnerships with local businesses and community groups help create a strong foundation for HAT's work. We strive to operate collaboratively with individuals, businesses, local governments, first nations, and foundations to reach our conservation goals. Without their support, our work would not be possible. 

Since 1996 HAT has pursued a non-confrontational and pragmatic approach to partnerships with companies and businesses. Our work is grounded in the science of conservation.

We thank all of the organizations listed below for making a positive environmental impact through their partnership with HAT.
