This project focuses on collaborating with municipalities (and other stakeholders) across Southern BC to assess crucial areas that could be designated as 'Protected Areas." Southern BC is home to high numbers of species at risk and sensitive ecosystems under threat. This is a great opportunity for municipalities to work towards conserving these natural areas and contribute to the global and national conservation goal of 30 by 30. The process and results of the assessments are documented.
