Facilitating the protection and restoration of species and ecosystems at risk on BC’s South Coast
The SCCP continues to focus on the program activities funded in 2018 including the Nature Stewards Program, working with local governments, planning new webinars and public engagement. Investment in our legacy programs remains ongoing as opportunities arise, e.g. Species at risk in the Classroom, collaboration with local First Nations and building on existing and new partnerships to affect conservation-based change on the South Coast.

Upcoming SCCP Fall Webinar: The Value of Indicators. This will be the 6th in our ongoing webinar series to connect landowners, stewards and land use decision-makers with the tools and resources to understand and address species at risk, habitat and biodiversity conservation challenges on BC's South Coast. This webinar will focus on the partnership between Metro Vancouver and the University of BC to refine the use of local native species and their associated ecosystems as indicators to help measure and conserve biodiversity values and ecological services as part of land use planning from the local to regional scale. Biodiversity indicators were first developed for Metro Vancouver’s Biodiversity strategy in 2003. Recently they have been refined using new modeling and analysis tools to support the development and application of Metro Vancouver's Sensitive Ecosystem Inventory and Ecological Health Action Plan.
