SCCP Responds to Provincial Call for Input on Species At Risk Protection

In October of this year (2016) the Government of BC posted a public call “asking British Columbians for input and innovative ideas on new ways to protect species at risk and how to better support activities such as inventory, monitoring, research and stewardship programs for species at risk in our province.


 

Legs & Regs!

Recovery strategies and action plans are being posted like hot cakes! While many others are being finalized, public input is wanted on critical habitat and other policies.

'SEARious' Science

Understanding critical habitat needs for our rarest South Coast amphibian:


In 2013 Monica Pearson, renowned Oregon Spotted Frog champion co-authored a report on how to define the most relevant conservation habitat needs for ‘OSF’, a highly imperiled amphibian at risk in the Fraser Valley.

South Coast Voice

Students take action to protect “Aurora the Lonely Frog*”.  In early 2016, as part of our Species at Risk in The Classroom program, Pamela Zevit was working on an extended mentoring program with Eagle Mountain Middle School in Anmore.

Species Pick!

Follow the bouncing ball! That is what the “boop, boop, boop” call of the Western Screech-owl brings to mind! This largest of our trio of little ‘arboreal’ owls on the South Coast is in trouble.

Programs & Resources

In 2013 the SCCP began to develop a unique approach to addressing habitat restoration for species at risk. While there is a plethora of guidance documents out there, resources specific to South Coast species and ecological communities at risk are scarce or dated.

What's New?

Transition, transition, transition! The South Coast Conservation Program like just about any other organization is not static. As a non-profit joint venture we are at the whim of grant funding cycles, sponsorship opportunities and partner capacity. This year has had its high and low points in that regard.
