26 Peace Region 2021-2022 fish and wildlife projects
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.
Coastal Region — Bats in the Clowhom River Watershed will benefit from 45 newly installed bat houses and repairs. A cluster of maternity boxes, which has been used by more than 600 bats, has been repaired and upgraded. This work will help ensure the survival of bats and their habitat in the watershed and surrounding communities.Read more
Columbia Region — Restoration work at Reflection Lake near Golden means improved breeding habitat for marsh birds, like the sora, Virginia rail, pied-billed grebe, wood duck, hooded merganser, and the provincially Blue-listed eared grebe. As part of the project, a Ktunaxa knowledge-keeper held a workshop for Indigenous community members on harvesting and curing cattail for basket weaving—helping revive a cultural tradition.Read more
