A Win for Threatened Caribou in BC
The Nature Trust of British Columbia purchased the Kennedy Siding property in central BC in partnership with the Peace Region Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program. Kennedy Siding is critical habitat for threatened Woodland Caribou that winter on the property from October through January.

Jasper Lament, CEO of The Nature Trust of BC said, “We are proud to add the Kennedy Siding property to the more than 71,000 hectares (175,000 acres) of vulnerable habitat we protect and care for across this province. It is a win for this population of threatened caribou in BC and an example of what is possible when conservation partners work together.”

It's All About Freshwater
Nina Morrell, who has a Master of Science degree in wildlife ecology from UBC, is working on developing methodology and spatial GIS layers that identify the relative ecological value of wetland and riparian areas throughout the province. These ecosystems are important for conservation of biodiversity because they provide spawning and breeding habitat, movement corridors, and freshwater sources for fish and wildlife.

These layers will be added to our Relative Ecological Assessment tool to aid in the evaluation of potential conservation acquisitions. In other words, we will have more ecological information to help us select new conservation lands.

This six month project has been generously funded with the help of UBC’s Biodiversity Research: Training and Education (BRITE) and the Federal government’s Mitacs Career Connect internship programs.
