The Fraser Valley Regional Biodiversity Strategy involves varying levels of government and civil society groups with an interest in environmental conservation. The strategy hopes to increase awareness on the importance of biodiversity protection in the Fraser Valley, bring together the strengths of all those working towards the protection of biodiversity, generate new conservation data, and incorporate previously established and new data into land use planning and property development.
This strategy will identify areas of particular land conservation need and lead to habitat protection through land stewardship activities in the Fraser Valley.
All of our research like Harrison Sensitive Ecosystem Inventory Mapping, Species at Risk (SAR), Abbotsford Restrictive Fisheries Covenants; and our programs like the Environmental Stewardship and Youth Stewards Program fit under the scope and direction of the Fraser Valley Regional Biodiversity Strategy.
The strategy is shaped by the citizens and stakeholders of the Fraser Valley, if you would know of a special Fraser Valley place please contact us today, we would love to hear from you.
