Report breeding colonies of bank swallows in your area of the Kootenays.

In November 2017, the federal government published an Order to list Bank Swallow as threatened under Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA). The Kootenay Bank Swallow Survey will give us a better picture of current status and allow comparisons with historical data. Here’s how to report:

  • identify colony locations
  • take photographs of colonies
  • count numbers of burrows (in the field or from photographs)
  • record date and number of adults observed
  • OR, request a data form from the address below.
