Restoration work helps species at risk on Vancouver Island
In 2015, the FWCP helped purchase 67 hectares of conservation land to complement the existing 104 hectares of the Salmon River Estuary Conservation Area. The land, near Sayward, is owned by The Nature Trust of BC (NTBC).
Fast forward to 2018 and work continues to improve habitat on the conservation lands that have previously been impacted by logging and gravel extraction. Since 2015, five hectares of invasive Scotch Broom have been removed, several small wetlands enhanced, and, with the help of the Guardian Watchmen from the K’ómoks First Nation, approximately 1.5 hectares of Red Alder forest have been thinned that will help support songbirds.
