Within its Peace Region, FWCP is funding 20 fish and wildlife projects for more than $970,000 in 2016-17. Many projects funded in our Peace Region involve local First Nations. Across the province, FWCP is funding more than 116 fish and wildlife projects for a total of approximately $8.7 million.
The projects approved for FWCP funding reflect conservation priorities in the region, and were selected after a review by the FWCP’s First Nations’ Working Group (FNWG), technical committees and the 16-member Peace Region Board.
“We fund hands-on and research-based projects that align with our strategic Action Plans,” says FWCP Peace Region Manager, Dan Bouillon, adding, “most projects we fund are delivered by stewardship groups, consultants and agencies, and we involve First Nations early in planning each project.”
In 2016-17, FWCP is funding fish and wildlife projects in the Parsnip, Dinosaur, Peace and Finlay sub-regions.
