COLUMBIA BASIN DRAINAGE MAP
Since its inception in 1995, the Columbia Basin Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program has funded hundreds of projects to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife populations impacted by BC Hydro dam construction in the Canadian portion of the Columbia Basin. In 2005 - 06 it earmarked $3.9 million from BC Hydro for local fish and wildlife projects.
The 2005 - 06 funding will be shared between 11 fish and 22 wildlife projects that address sturgeon, grey wolves, bald eagles, great blue herons, bull trout, kokanee, bighorn sheep, northern leopard frogs, caribou, western painted turtles, bats, bobolinks, western skinks, large mammals, amphibians and more. Other projects are aimed at habitat restoration, endangered forests and species inventory work. For a complete list of 2005 - 06 funded projects please review our fish and wildlife project lists.

A significant portion of our annual funding goes towards the Fertilization Program in the Arrow Lakes Reservoir and Kootenay Lake, one of the largest successful lake restoration programs in the world.
To date, the CBFWCP has invested more than $30 million delivering fish and wildlife projects. Almost one-third of those projects focused on species at risk. Projects are delivered both by CBFWCP staff and a wide range of partners including First Nations, industrial partners, local communities and environmental groups.
