Andrew S. Wright
Vancouver, BC

Dr. Andrew S Wright co-founded and built a successful hi-tech company in the early 1990s, retiring in 2005 from an active engineering role to pursue philanthropic interests of inner city childhood education enrichment, environmental and conservation issues on a full time basis.

Since 2007 he has been actively involved in three conservation issues concerning the coast of British Columbia; Coastal logging, aquaculture, and the trophy hunting of bears.  As a lead donor in the Great Bear Rainforest agreement that has conserved several million hectares of temperate rainforest he is acutely aware of the rapid loss of biodiversity in British Columbia.  He is also an advisory board member to the Tides Canada aquaculture innovation fund and the SOS Marine Conservation foundation and is working with the Namgis nation to construct the first land based closed containment salmon farm in British Columbia.  He is also a board member of the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation society that works to protect the IUCN red list critically endangered sturgeon stocks of the lower Fraser River in British Columbia.

He is an avid amateur conservation photographer and is invariably drawn into conservation issues while trying to find great images – his photographs have been used extensively by Sierra Club BC, Forest Ethics, Green Peace, Canopy, The Rainforest Solutions Project, and WWF.  His campaign book,  “Faltering Light", arguing for the cessation of bear trophy hunting, has been presented to a significant number of British Columbia's cabinet ministers.
