What would you do to support species and conserve habitats impacted by BC Hydro dams? The Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP) wants to your help to define FWCP priorities for fish and wildlife impacted by the Clowhom Dam. Please join our online discussion Tuesday, Feb. 21, from 2-4 pm.
The dam is on the Clowhom River, which runs into Salmon Inlet, which is connected to Sechelt Inlet.
“We’re starting a discussion that will help determine what conservation and enhancement projects are within our mandate for the Clowhom River watershed for the next five years,” says Julie Fournier, Manager of the FWCP’s Coastal Region.
Confirm your attendance at the Feb. 21 online discussion by Feb. 17 via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will need a phone and an internet connection.
In the Clowhom River watershed the FWCP is currently funding a multi-year wildlife project to assess and map wetlands and undertake comprehensive surveys of species-at-risk and their habitats with an emphasis on Northern Goshawks, bats and Roosevelt Elk, the largest elk in B.C. and a priority species in this watershed.
The FWCP is a partnership between BC Hydro, the Province of BC, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, First Nations and Public Stakeholders to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife impacted by BC Hydro dams. Learn more at fwcp.ca Submitted
