Project Results

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.

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.

Restoration work helps species at risk on Vancouver Island

Coastal Region — Restoration work continues at the Salmon River Estuary Conservation Area near Sayward with the removal of invasive Scotch Broom, enhancement of small wetlands, and thinning of Red Alder forest to support songbirds. The FWCP helped purchase the land, which is owned by the Nature Trust of BC, to provide habitat for at-risk species.

Length of Douglas Creek restored

Columbia Region — Over 560 metres of Douglas Creek in the Bull River drainage near Fernie were restored to a functioning wetland ecosystem to support a diversity of plants and animals, including Columbia Ground Squirrels and American Badgers. Funded by the FWCP, the project transformed a hayfield into functioning creek channel and floodplain, and saw the establishment of 14 ephemeral wetland basins.

63 fish tagged in Arctic Grayling study

Peace Region — 63 fish were tagged in year 1 of a long-term project to study Arctic Grayling interactions with Bull Trout, and their distribution in the Parsnip River and its tributaries. Using approaches like acoustic telemetry, capture-recapture, temperature data logging, stable isotope analysis, and spatial modelling, this FWCP-funded project aims to close data gaps about Arctic Grayling and inform future conservation projects.
