Project Results

In 2024-2025 our boards approved $8.7 million for 81 fish and wildlife projects to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife in watersheds impacted by BC Hydro dams. As the projects proceed, we will share results and project outcomes here, including final project reports.

We share project results in our annual reports, through our Coastal, Columbia, and Peace region e-letters, social media, and this page.

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.
