Our Members and Supporters
AHC was founded by eight organizations who joined efforts in their shared interests to better protect aquatic habitats. These organizations came together to initiate a program to apply Indigenous Traditional Knowledge and Western science through valuable research, engaging in stewardship, and providing rigorous, evidence-based policy advice and recommendations to governments and industry.
