This week The Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans announced they will be providing $12 million for 6 projects in British Columbia under the Aquatic Ecosystems Restoration Fund.

Majority of these funds will go to the Nature Trust of British Columbia, however, numerous projects from across the province will be funded, including salmon restoration projects in the Skeena region and the Bulkley Valley through the Skeena Knowledge Trust, a non-profit focused on scientific data collection and education.

The $12 million is in addition to $75 million announced last year by the federal government for the program overt the next five years.

Since 2016 more than $3.5 billion to the Oceans Protection Plan, making it the largest investment Canada has ever made to protect its coasts and waterways.

$312,602 over the next four years for Skeena Knowledge Trust to create a comprehensive salmon-specific project registry that will provide an overview of all completed aquatic-based salmon restoration projects across the Skeena River watershed and estuary.

Today we’ll speak with Johanna Pfalz, Coordinator for the Skeena Knowledge trust.
