F20 Non-game Enhancement completed 8 projects on 7 different non-game species. Townsends Big-eared Bat maternity roost monitoring was completed in the East Kootenay. Fencing at a Highway underpass was maintained to reduce Badger Mortality in the East Kootenay. Lewis Woodpecker nest sites were monitored in the West Kootenay with a total of 15 nest sites documented. The summit Lake Western Toad project included Highway surveys, tagging 431 toads, installing over 600 m of Animex toad fencing, and the annual Toadfest public event. Turtle nesting areas were maintained and monitored at Argenta and Elizabeth Lake. Turtle production was very low at both sites in 2019. This was largely due to predation at Elizabeth Lake.
