There’s a group working to protect vulnerable lands in British Columbia.
Members of the Land Conservancy of British Colombia have given thousands of dollars in order to protect the Clearwater Wildlife Corridor.
$61,000 have been donated so far out of the $100,000 needed. The protection will help protect four hectares of wildlife corridor in the Clearwater River Valley.
This corridor will connect 2 southern lobes of Wells Gray Provincial Park.
This means that cougar, bobcat, wolves, coyotes, grizzly, deer and mouse won’t have to cross private lands when they migrate between the winter and summer ranges.
The private lands in the area are undergoing considerable development pressure, and the conservancy is working to find the final $39,000 of the purchase price by the end of the year so the land can be protected.
