Take a tour of some of B.C.’s most valuable natural habitat.
The Cowichan-Koksilah Estuary is one of the largest estuaries in British Columbia. It is home to more than 230 species of birds throughout the year, and provides vital food and habitat for thousands of migrating and wintering waterfowl over the cold months.
