Welcome to the Bella Coola Watershed Conservation Society

The Bella Coola Watershed Conservation Society was established in 2001 for the purpose of establishing a sustainable watershed for fish, people and resources.

 

Our society is a non-profit organization working in collaboration and cooperation with First Nations groups, industry, local, provincial and federal governments and other societies and individuals.

Our mission

The Bella Coola Watershed Conservation Society is devoted to the protection, restoration and enhancement of fish and fish habitat within the watersheds of the Central Coast.

 

The Society recognizes that all activities undertaken within the watersheds, both aquatic based and land based, play a significant role in the success of fish stocks and are therefore of interest to the Society and its members.

 

The Society also recognizes that certain oceanic activities have a considerable impact on fish stocks and fish habitat, and for that reason are of importance to the Society and its members.

 

The Bella Coola Watershed Conservation Society acts as a fundamental center for existing interests and organizations and employs a variety of resources to achieve its primary goal including:

- Public awareness and education
- Moral and financial support of related organizations and activities
- Research, data collection and information exchange
- Development and implementation of projects pertaining to fish habitat
- Compilation of watershed historical data into a database so that it is accessible to the public by establishing a resource center.
