Estuary Research Projects

Enhancing BC Estuaries—Nature Trust BC

The Nature Trust of British Columbia has secured funding from the BC Salmon Restoration and Innovation Fund to implement a five-year project to improve estuary habitat to enhance the long-term sustainability and health of wild BC fish stocks. 

The project takes a two-pronged approach:

  • Conducting monitoring and research to assess estuary resilience to sea-level rise at 15 sites on Vancouver Island, the central coast and Haida Gwaii.

  • Implementation of several major ecological restoration projects to restore core estuarine processes in Years 4 and 5.
