Audience:  Government and Public

This project is focused on the restoration of amphibian metapopulations within a forest harvest disturbance area. The third year is scheduled to include the final year of baseline monitoring and the first year of restoration actions. Our upland restoration action involves the installation of an artificial hibernacula within a radio-tracked migration route. The artificial hibernacula will be constructed in the summer while animals are using different seasonal habitat. Aquatic and riparian restoration components will be installed in the fall of year three as animals move away from these warm-season habitats into overwintering habitat. Partnerships with the First Nation communities of Nak azdli whut en and Tsay Keh Dene, and collaborations with government and industrial stakeholders have been integral in the success of efforts to date. The objectives of this project align with FWCP Peace Region Action Plans: to conserve or enhance the integrity of ecologically important habitats, and implement projects identified through approved recovery strategies, action plans, and management plans.
