The South Okanagan Similkameen Conservation Program (SOSCP) was created in 2000 as a partnership of 20 government and non-government organisations collaborating to conserve the unique species and spaces found in one of the most ecologically rich, rare and at-risk landscapes in BC. By 2018, it had over 50 members, including government, NGOs, Indigenous groups and academics, working to achieve shared biodiversity conservation goals.
