The Wetlands Workforce is excited to share with you our showcase webinar, Wetlands: Hope in a Time of Uncertainty, which highlights the work and resources that came out of this one-year project.
On behalf of the B.C. Wildlife Federation’s Wetlands Workforce project, we are pleased to present this final report which highlights the work our crews accomplished and the collaboration achieved throughout 2021.
Every year, people from around the world come together to celebrate wetlands. World Wetlands Day dates back to 1971, when several environmentalists joined together to reaffirm the importance and love for wetlands.
This is not a story of loss. It is one of hope and resilience, at a time when it is needed. The global COVID pandemic has shaken our certainty in the future and has made us refocus our priorities, with our health and the health of our environment being at the top of the list. Every year it seems more of an effort is put towards mitigating the effects of climate change, yet more communities are dealing with the impacts of wildfires, droughts, and flooding, making it feel like nothing is being done and nothing can be done, but there is hope.
Leaving a legacy is no easy task, but one conservation hero has put us on a path of continued investment in healthy watersheds and wetlands.
