Our Story

118 New Fish and Wildlife Projects

Our three regional boards – Coastal, Columbia, and Peace – approved funding for 118 fish and wildlife projects, valued at approximately $10 million for 2018–2019. Each project went through a three-stage review and evaluation process prior to a final decision by our local Boards. Each project addresses one or more conservation priorities in our Action Plans.
