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.

The turtles were “head started,” which means they were raised in captivity until they reached a size that makes them less susceptible to predation.
