A project funded by FWCP and others confirms that threatened Bobolinks, a grassland songbird, are still breeding successfully in the Middle Shuswap River valley, despite low numbers. Recent surveys confirm 23 males and 15 females present. Loss of natural habitat and changes to farming practices play a part in their decline. At least one local farmer is working to conserve Bobolinks, and as a result of this work, local Bobolinks are now being monitored as part of a larger North American study. Learn more.
