SPEC is a citizens' evnironmental organization, the oldest and largest in British Columbia. Incorporated as a non-profit society in 1969, SPEC has 2000 members and 17 branches throughout the province. Its primary purpose is to protect the vital life-supporting ecosystems in British Columbia and Canada, and to promote the development of a 'Conserver Society' with stable population and conservation of resources.

Two types of proposals have been made for dealing with the environmental crisis. One attempts to reduce a particular kind of damage. The second type of proposal is concerned with ways to live in harmony with the environment, so that there would be little or no environmental damage. Examples are the use of environmentally appropriate technology and the development of a 'conserver society.' SPEC and many other environmentalists feel that it is necessary to remedy and prevent specific damage wherever possible, but this is not enough; we need to pay more and more attention to learning to live with nature.
