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 — Coho and Chum salmon are using new spawning habitat created in part by funding from FWCP. 50,000 m2 of instream rearing habitat, 750 m2 of spawning habitat was created or restored; and more than 20,000 native plants covering an area of 4,000 m2 were planted.Read more
Columbia Region — 136 hectares have been successfully treated on the Akisqnuk First Nation Reserve. The work will help a variety of listed species found in the region, including the American Badger, Flammulated Owl, Lewis’s Woodpecker, Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, and the Rubber Boa.Read more
Peace Region — Fast-tracking lichen re-growth is a priority in our Peace Region where Northern Caribou in the Chase Herd rely on the slow-growing lichen. A wildfire destroyed high-value pine lichen habitat, adding pressure to the at-risk herd. 3,000 litres of lichen were gathered near Wittisichica Creek, and planted in 80 test plots along the Mesilinka River with support and volunteers from the Tsay Keh Dene First Nation and others.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.
