Who We Are
To leave a legacy that demonstrates the value of continued investment in healthy wetlands and watersheds.
The B.C. Wildlife Federation’s Wetlands Workforce project is a collaboration with conservation organizations and First Nations that will deploy work-pods across British Columbia throughout 2021. Through these work-pods the project aims to improve riparian area habitat; monitor the effectiveness of wetland restoration sites; advance collaborative restoration projects with First Nations and communities; provide employment opportunities targeting women, young adults, and First Nations; and to support Province-wide monitoring initiatives that will improve wetland management.
- Engagement & Learning
Every day a new wetland that brings with it bigger challenges, unexpected answers, and a greater understanding of its functions and values. Wetlands Workforce work-pods have been out in the field conducting the Wetlands Ecosystem Services Protocol (WESP).
Two of the major tasks our Wetlands Workforce crews are working on this year are the Wetlands Ecosystem Services Protocol (WESP) and Predictive Mapping.
