Luxor Linkage Wetland – 2017

Luxor Linkage

Luxor Linkage Wetland (Nature Conservancy of Canada): This property, located in the Upper Columbia Valley, connects Kootenay National Park to the ecologically significant Columbia River Wildlife Management Area and secures important valley-bottom habitat. Since there are no protected or Crown lands that connect the Columbia Valley wetlands to the Canadian Rockies between Radium and Golden, private land conservation ensures long-term connectivity between these two important wildlife areas. This project supports habitat for virtually all carnivores and ungulates that occur in the East Kootenay, including badger, grizzly bear, black bear, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, elk, white-tailed deer, mule deer, and moose as well as numerous waterbird species.
