THE HEART OF THE FRASER IS IN PERIL

This precious stretch of the river between Mission and Hope, less than two hours drive from Vancouver, provides prime spawning habitat for salmon and white sturgeon and serves as a nursery for millions of baby salmon every year. Two large islands in the Heart of the Fraser are under imminent threat. Herrling and Carey Islands not only provide a large amount of vital fish habitat but are an important area for fishing and outdoor recreation.

Developers have recently cleared massive amounts of forest on both islands. They have applied to build bridges to these islands which, if approved, would lead to the destruction of critical fish habitat for agriculture or subdivisions. This could also increase flood risk in the surrounding communities. These bridges must not be approved!

There is now a major effort by BC’s conservation community to secure, protect and restore these islands. The future of the Fraser as one of the world’s great salmon rivers depends on its success.
