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.

1,500 metres of fencing removed

Columbia Region — Volunteers removed 1,500 metres of wire fencing in the Pend d’Oreille Valley near Trail. The fencing installed in the 1990s was no longer needed, and was impacting wildlife movements in this important corridor for white-tailed deer and other ungulates.

30 at-risk toads tracked

Peace Region — Forty-two road ponds—that’s flooded road ditch habitat—in our Peace Region were surveyed for use by at-risk western toads in a project led by Ecologic Consulting with funding from the FWCP. Thirty toads were tracked at four sites, prompting an amphibian restoration framework and management guide.
