Adapting for Ecological Resilience in the Lower Fraser Network
The ecological resilience of the Lower Fraser River faces unprecedented challenges. These range from extensive biodiversity loss and a crisis for the Fraser River’s salmon populations to outdated urban wastewater and stormwater infrastructure and a rapidly changing climate. Multiple organizations and agencies support efforts to address these threats. However, no strategy, network or mechanism exists to align contemporary interests, plans or agendas working to conserve the Lower Fraser.
We are establishing the Lower Fraser Adapting for Ecological Resilience Network (the Network) to align conservation priorities and encourage collaboration between various groups.
