The Heart of the Fraser is in peril. Herrling and Carey Islands, two large islands that are in the stretch of the Fraser between Mission and Hope, are under imminent threat. These islands provide prime spawning habitat for chum salmon and white sturgeon. Yet, developers have applied to build bridges to these islands which, if approved, would lead to the destruction of critical fish habitat for agriculture or subdivisions. This could also increase flood risk in the surrounding communities. These bridges must not be approved! WILL YOU STAND WITH US? Visit our website and look for the Defend the Heart of the Fraser tab. Sign the petition and contact your MLA! 📷: Jessica Rodriguez

Day 3 of monitoring wetlands: Salix and Sedge was beautiful! Turns out monitoring 2 wetlands a day leaves little time for sleep... but we will persevere! Passing it off to the Okanagan Fall Hunting and Outdoor Show for the weekend !!

Hi! It’s Emily, Jason and Dan over in Comox having just finished up our second day in the field, doing vegetative surveys, soil samples, and deploying water temperature loggers. We visited this neat saline wetland on salt spring island yesterday. I would make a bed out of the super soft sand spurry we found there! #wetlandsconservation #saltspringisland
