(BURNABY) If you want to help conserve and enhance local fish and wildlife, here’s your chance. The Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP) is looking for a new board member to join its Coastal Region, which includes the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island and parts of the Southern Interior of B.C.

“We are looking for a public representative to join our nine-member board,” says FWCP-Coastal Region Manager, Trevor Oussoren adding, “Volunteer candidates should support our vision of thriving fish and wildlife populations in watersheds that are functioning and sustainable.”

As a Board member, you will review and approve funding for all FWCP fish and wildlife projects in the region. You will also support planning and project delivery. This year, the FWCP’s budget in the Coastal Region is $2.1 million.

“We have a great, committed Board that works closely with our technical committees to ensure projects we fund are in alignment with our Action Plans and reflect regional priorities,” says Board chair Brian Assu.

Apply by April 30, 2015.

The FWCP is a partnership of First Nations, Public Stakeholders, BC Hydro, the Province of B.C., and Fisheries and Oceans Canada to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife impacted by BC Hydro dams.
