Rationale

British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast is recognized for its rich diversity of ecosystems, flora and fauna. It is also the third fastest growing region in province. The human population jumped more than 8% from 2001 to 2006 and is expected to increase by 65% from 2001 to 2031. Meanwhile, less than 3% of land on the Sunshine Coast is protected as park, well below the 13% provincial standard.

The biodiversity of this special area is threatened by expanding habitat loss, fragmentation and degradation. As development intensifies, now is the critical window of opportunity to take the necessary steps to help ensure the long-term survival of native wildlife and their habitats.

The goal of the Sunshine Coast Wildlife Project is to take action to conserve, restore and enhance wildlife habitat and implement on-the-ground threat abatement measures to ensure the survival of species at risk.
