Did you know?

BC's Fish and Wildlife are At Risk.
 

  • Over the past 50 years the population in BC has grown exponentially, doubling in size from 2.2 to over 4.8 million people.
     
  • In the past 20 years, over 20% of government jobs dedicated to natural resource management have been removed. While at the same time, funding for natural resource management was cut in half.
     
  • BC has the highest number of species at risk in all of Canada including several iconic animals: central mountain caribou, sturgeon, mule deer, steelhead, and many more. This list continues to grow every year.
     
  • Today,only 58 steelhead remain in the Chilcotin river and only 177 steelhead in the Thompson, the lowest in 40 years. One of British Columbia's most iconic populations of steelhead is almost completely wiped-out forever.
     

Everyday the BCWF is working to advocate on behalf of British Columbia's fish and wildlife. Some of the projects we are working include but are not limited to:

  • Combating rapid development in the Heart of the Fraser to protect crucial white sturgeon and salmoid habitat.
     
  • Working to protect what's left of the Thompson and Chilcotin Steelhead by recognizing them as endangered species.
     
  • Learning how to restore mule deer populations in BC by studying how landscape change and the predator prey community are affecting our current populations.
     
  • Leading numerous wetlands activities that result in habitat restoration, enhancement and conservation projects.
     
  • Working with the BC Government and local communities to help increase the abundancy of fish and wildlife that presently continue to decline.

Help be the voice of BC's fish and wildlife and speak for those who can't speak for themselves.

BC Wildlife Federation Year in Review



 

The BC Wildlife Federation has launched an online petition calling on the BC government to increase funding and to set objectives for our fish, wildlife and habitat.  

BC is one of the most biodiverse jurisdictions in North America and at the same time one of the most under-funded.  
 
The intent of the petition is to convey the importance British Columbians place on fish, wildlife and habitat.
