Facilitating the protection and restoration of species and ecosystems at risk on BC’s South Coast

National and International Guidelines

Written and edited by Christina Luzier and Shelly Miller this document is a product of the Pacific Northwest Native Freshwater Mussel Workgroup.

Mussel relocation projects are undertaken for a variety of reasons. Many projects are intended to move mussels from the zone of impact of a construction project. Others are designed to create refuge populations for species threatened with extinction. In...

Beaver as a Partner in Restoration!
More and more, restoration practitioners are using beaver to accomplish stream, wetland, and floodplain restoration. This is happening because, by constructing dams that impound water and retain sediment, beaver substantially alter the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of the surrounding river ecosystem, providing benefits to plants, fish,...
This document includes recommended Best Management Practices (BMPs) for protecting and conserving Oregon’s two native turtle species, the western painted turtle and the western pond turtle. While there are opportunities for all Oregonians to become more knowledgeable about and participate in turtle conservation efforts, this document is intended...

Most of the 6,000 to 12,000 Pacific Great Blue Herons occur in south-coastal British Columbia and north-coastal Washington State (Butler 1997, Gebauer and Moul 2001). Primary threats to the Pacific Great Blue Heron are from Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) depredation, habitat loss, and human disturbance (Norman et al. 1989, Butler 1997...

Barn Owls are closely tied to agricultural landscapes, and if you are lucky you might see them flying silently over grass fields at dusk hunting for small mammals. In BC, Barn Owls are only found on the South Coast with the odd occurrence on southeast Vancouver Island. Unfortunately, their...

Why approach restoration from a multi-species lens, what are the methods and tools to apply? This presentation provides a primer being developed for the South Coast

Stream channel maintenance works are required to reduce flooding and maintain drainage for farmland. Works have traditionally used excavators with sloped buckets to dredge vegetation within watercourses. However dredging is considered the most adverse and harmful method for maintaining a watercourse due to its significant negative impacts on fish and...

This document provides information on management measures that will benefit the Oregon Forestsnail (Allogona townsendiana) and associated native terrestrial gastropod fauna (slugs and land snails) found within moist deciduous and mixed-wood forest stands on the Lower Mainland and southern Vancouver Island.

The objectives of this article are to introduce this species at risk and its related conservation issues to fisheries practitioners; to request information on past and future mortalities or observations; and to recommend methods to mitigate this potential source of mortality to facilitate recovery of the species.
