Cariboo-Chilcotin Wetland-Johnathan Thompson, Ducks Unlimited Canada


In the first 2 years, CIJV partners contributed over $12 million to secure over 114,000 hectares of wetland and associated habitat
in the Canadian Intermountain. The partnership is continuing to track its accomplishments. This support has come from partners in both Canada and the United States, with assistance through the North American Wetlands Conservation Act. CIJV partners have undertaken significant conservation measures: habitat acquisitions, stewardship and protection programs, development and implementation strategies and communications and outreach programs. In the Columbia Valley, for example, conservation organizations and government agencies have secured sizeable acreages of prime wildlife habitat through acquisitions and covenants.
