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 — 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.Read more
Columbia Region — Eleven white-tailed deer and three mule deer in the Columbia Mountains have been outfitted with GPS collars as part of a multi-year project with Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute. The data collected will shed light on why populations are declining, which is critical to effective management and recovery actions.Read more
Peace Region — This is the third consecutive year of Arctic grayling snorkel surveys in the Ingenika River Watershed. Our Peace Region is the southernmost range for this species of concern. Get a glimpse of this important FWCP-funded work in the traditional territory of the Tsay Keh Dene with a short video by Chu Cho Environmental.Read more
To make it easy for you to find project reports and results, we prepare and update searchable spreadsheets for each of our regions. Use these spreadsheets to find the report you want. Contact us anytime if you need help to find a FWCP project report.
Each FWCP region prepares an annual report that includes a financial overview and a summary of project results.Read our Annual Reports
