Mountains tower over wetlands as salmon journey through the more than 440 lush estuaries along the Pacific Coast. The Interior sees more than 1.5 million waterfowl breed each year, while several hundred thousand more pass to-and-from on route to the boreal forest.
The Pacific Flyway is critical to the survival of waterfowl, with eight million passing through the coast and Vancouver Island during migration and the winter. But our ecosystem is under threat. Climate change and development are risks to the province’s future. DUC is working throughout B.C. to ensure future generations can experience and benefit from these incredible ecological gifts.
