The Heart of the Fraser

Published on Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

“The Heart of the Fraser is in peril…”

My good friend Dr Marvin Rosenau sent this to me and has urged me to share it with my followers.
All of you who fish the Lower Fraser River and tributaries from Mission to Hope, already understand the ecological importance of this stretch. Salmon either spawn here or travel through as a corridor, cutthroat trout fishing can be pretty awesome, sturgeon fishing is also productive year round. Eagles, bears and other wildlife depend on these fish, so it makes sense to protect and enhance it right?

Well, as unbelievable as it sounds, developers have applied for permits to build bridges to two large islands, Herrling and Carey, for agriculture and subdivisions. These bridges must not be approved! If approved, it would not only lead to destruction of critical fish habitat and we are looking at losing more access to fishing areas.

Please take a few minutes to watch this video, and sign the pledge on the following website:

The Heart of the Fraser is a coalition of concerned groups including Watershed Watch Salmon Society, BC Wildlife Federation, BCIT Rivers Institute, Outdoor Recreation Council of BC, British Columbia Federation Of Drift Fishers, Raincoast Conservation Foundation, Alouette River Management Society.

Please share this with your friends.
