Who We Are

Our Mission: 
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.
