The highlights from Year 1 (2019-20) Year 2 (2020-21) and Year 3 (2021-22) are listed below.

Year 2 Highlights

The Bonanza Biodiversity Corridor (BBC) is known as a biodiversity hot spot, with a diverse and ever-increasing list of species confirmed in the area. The Biodiversity and Species-at-Risk Project is a three-year sub-project of the Kootenay Connect – Bonanza Biodiversity Corridor Ecosystems Enhancement Projects. This report is the summary of the first two years of the project.

Year 3 Highlights

This report is the conclusion of a three-year study that included ecosystem mapping, habitat assessments, and an in-depth inventory of the full range of biodiversity that occurs in the watershed. Beyond inventories and mapping the watershed, a main outcome of the project was the development of a conservation values assessment map that combines all the existing ecological information for the watershed on a single map in the form of high-value conservation areas and species-at-risk management zones.
