Donate to Protect the Planet 

If you want to help, but are unable to join us as a volunteer, organizer or frontline land defender, please make a donation.  Any amount is appreciated! We are a grassroots organization with an all-volunteer staff, which means all of your donation goes to stopping the expansion of tar sands pipelines. 

Note that members of Protect the Planet have agreed since our inception that we will re-direct a portion of our donations to the frontline Indigenous movements fighting fossil fuel pipelines in BC.

Protect the Planet Association is a non profit society, not a charity. Donations to Protect the Planet are not eligible for a charitable tax credit.

Past Fundraisers

This special fundraiser for Dr. Tim Takaro is complete. 

Over $10,000 was raised for Tim's court challenge. The donations that were not used for legal fees -- more than $1,000 -- were donated to Protect the Planet to continue our fight against the planet destroying TMX project.

Tim is back from his 28 day custodial sentence. He remains undeterred in his commitment to fight for a liveable planet. 

Many thanks to all who donated and supported this important court challenge. Your support gives us all hope.

Tim Takaro, a physician and SFU professor, has been engaged in climate change activism for 30 years - researching, lecturing, publishing, speaking to government leaders and elected officials, and joining protests to raise awareness of the urgent need to slow climate change. In response to the World Health Organization "Code Red for Humanity" declaration and the urging by the United Nations Panel on Climate Change to stop building fossil fuel infrastructure, in 2020, he became part of Protect the Planet - Stop TMX, joining with Indigenous partners and other allies to stop work on the TMX (Trans Mountain pipeline expansion). 

Tim led a tree-sit in the pathway of the project and he and his colleagues engaged in a peaceful protest for 18 months, slowing its construction. On November 29, 2021, when the RCMP entered the work site to remove the protesters, Tim refused to leave the tree-sit and was arrested. Tim joined over 240 nonviolent land defenders who have been arrested attempting to stop the pipeline expansion, and five of his fellow protesters who served time in jail for their role in the protests.
