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.

1,179 potential huckleberry sites visited

Columbia Region — Predicting the location of huckleberry patches important to Grizzly Bears is key to habitat protection. In an FWCP-funded project, 1,179 potential huckleberry sites were visited—including 332 in 2019—and 768 were found to be used by Grizzly Bears. This dataset was used to create predictive modelling to apply to the East Kootenay, North Columbia, Central Purcell, Selkirks, Valhalla, and Granby regions to support local Grizzly habitat.

eDNA sampling expands Arctic Grayling distribution

Peace Region — Arctic Grayling have been identified in five streams in the Williston Core Area thanks to environmental DNA (eDNA) sampling. In this FWCP-funded project, 44 samples were taken from 15 rivers and creeks to identify the distribution and habitat of the Arctic Grayling and promote further conversation and enhancement actions.
