31 Coastal Region 2021-2022 fish and wildlife projects
43 Columbia Region 2021-2022 fish and wildlife projects
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.

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 — Twenty-four northern leopard frog egg masses were found in the Creston Valley last field season—one of the highest counts since monitoring started in 2000! The high number of egg masses allowed biologists to move nearly 11,000 tadpoles to part of the frog’s historical range near Brisco, north of Radium Hot Springs.Read more
Peace Region — Breeding populations of the olive-sided flycatcher have been identified in the Finlay Reach of the Williston Reservoir.

About half of the birds are thought to be resident breeders, while the other half are likely migratory transients.Read more
