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.
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. 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.
