300 Hectares conserved
1,532 Final reports
7.28 Million hectares mapped
118 Projects approved 2018 - 2019
Each year we fund projects to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife in watersheds impacted by BC Hydro dams.
We share project results in our newsletter, annual reports, and through WildBytes, our quarterly e-letter.
We also prepare and post searchable project report spreadsheets for our Coastal, Columbia and Peace Regions. You can use these spreadsheets to find links to final FWCP project reports. All FWCP project reports are posted on Province of BC databases, that way everyone has access to our reports and results.
Our projects can have immediate benefits to species and ecosystems. For example, if we fund a project to remove a culvert, fish passage can be improved right away. Other projects may take longer to show results. Our funding of recovery efforts for endangered Northern Leopard Frogs, caribou, and Vancouver Island Marmots are examples of where a longer-term commitment is needed before results will be evident.
If you have questions, or can’t find a report, contact us.
We'll be updating this space regularly with project results from our regions.
Coastal Region — People power gets results. That’s one of the take-aways the Lillooet Regional Invasive Species Society (LRISS) discovered when evaluating its project to remove invasive plants – particularly Yellow Flag Iris – in select tributaries of the Bridge-Seton watershed.Read more
Columbia Region — Improving habitat for Columbia Ground Squirrels is one of the best ways to improve habitat for badgers. That’s because ground squirrels are high on the badgers’ list of preferred foods in the East Kootenay. The Rocky Mountain Trench Natural Resources Society is in the process of restoring an impressive 412 hectares of grassland and open forest habitat at Ta Ta Creek, just west of Wasa Lake.Read more
Peace Region — Recent surveys suggest moose populations are declining in some parts of BC and in response, the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development is leading a multi-year provincial moose study to understand possible causes of the decline. In the Peace Region, moose populations appear stable.Read more
Each FWCP region prepares an annual report that includes a financial overview and a summary of project results.
The annual reports are available by July of each year.Read our Annual Reports
To make it easy for you to find project reports and results, we prepare and update searchable spreadhseets for each of our regions. Use these spreadsheets to find the report you want. Contact us anytime if you need help to find a FWCP project report.
