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.

Restoration of Kus-kus-sum conservation lands will improve salmon habitat

Coastal Region — The restoration of a sawmill site along the Puntledge River is one step closer to being realized: new provincial funding will secure the purchase of the Kus-kus-sum conservation lands. We helped fund the purchase and develop the site restoration plan, which includes the removal of 3.36 ha of concrete and metal cladding along the shoreline. Restoration will improve habitat and increase survival for Chinook salmon and other species at this site of cultural and environmental significance to the K'omoks First Nation.

Improving kokanee habitat

Columbia Region — Creating spawning habitat at McDonalds Landing Regional Park: 80 m3 of clean spawning gravel was added to a 50-m-long stretch of water near the shoreline along the West Arm of Kootenay Lake, north of Nelson. It provides new habitat for declining shore-spawning kokanee and reduces the risk of redds being dewatered in the spring. Friends of Kootenay Lake led the project with help from the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development and funding from the FWCP.

Fifty-three nest boxes inspected

Peace Region — Monitoring and maintaining habitat structures—like these nest boxes in our Peace Region—is an important part of the work we fund. This nest box and others in the Parsnip Arm, have been well used since they were first installed by Ducks Unlimited. This year's work focused on replacing wood chips, repairing the boxes and confirming their use.
