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.

2,889 summer-run Chinook samples genotyped

Coastal Region — 2,889 genetic samples have been collected from summer-run Chinook Salmon in the Puntledge River Watershed. This project will help determine how migration time and bacterial kidney disease impact Chinook offspring. Led by the K’omoks First Nation, this project will help improve Chinook productivity in hatcheries and in the wild.

11 deer collared in the North Columbia

Columbia Region — The FWCP funded a study to explore the impact of deer populations on declining caribou populations in the Columbia Region. Eleven deer were collared to gather data about survival and recruitment within the mountain caribou range in the Columbia Mountains. Results will fill knowledge gaps about how deer populations contribute to increasing numbers of caribou predators, like wolves and cougars.

Managing access and predators to benefit caribou

Peace Region — Managing access and predators: The reforestation of a 2.3-km section of service road near Chetwynd in our Peace Region, has cut down on vehicle use in sensitive caribou calving range. The elimination of hard-packed trail has also reduced the number of wolves observed. Thanks to the success of this pilot project, led by Nîkanêse Wah tzee Stewardship Society, we’re funding actions to identify and restore other high-priority linear corridors.
