- to encourage the return of wild salmon runs;
- to enhance the creeks by repairing and creating additional habitat;
- to monitor and protect existing habitat, ensuring the miracle of salmon for future generations.
To achieve these goals, four major areas need to be addressed:
- Inclusion: Involvement and education of the public on the importance of non-degraded habitat/watercourses for salmon survival.
- Restoration: Increasing the survival rate of wild salmon and restoring their runs.
- Enhancement: Repair of creek, river and riparian habitat.
- Monitoring: Protection of fish, creeks and riparian habitat.
Our organization started with three very interested and willing people in 1993 and has steadily grown since then both in volunteer numbers, and in our own level of knowledge. The educational part of our endeavours has radiated out into the Baynes Sound community. We continue to network out into the Comox Valley, and the larger area of Vancouver Island.
In 1995, FBSES became a non-profit Society of 25 members, under the leadership of Jim Ackinclose. Today, we have 50 members that participate in the enhancement and monitoring of twenty watersheds on Baynes Sound.Back to Top
