We are working now to update our Peace Region 2014 ecosystem and species-based Action Plans by August 2020.
Our regional action plans outline the priority actions eligible for FWCP funding. We fund research, habitat-, and species-based actions, monitoring, and land securement projects. Read our current action plans.
During these uncertain times we want to assure you that the FWCP team is available. It’s not exactly business as usual but we are adapting like everyone else as we manage COVID-19 and our work together.
Our team is working from home-based offices and is available to you by phone or email. Contact us anytime if you have any questions about your grant, project or deliverables.More
