We work to conserve & protect wildlife and habitats for future generations.
The Petitcodiac Watershed Alliance has a deep interest and respect for local wildlife. Because the Petitcodiac River watershed is undergoing such rapid development, we must ensure that threats to local wildlife are avoided or reduced. We conduct, and assist in species-at-risk monitoring and habitat conservation projects in our watershed for species such as the endangered Inner Bay of Fundy Atlantic salmon, Wood turtle, Striped bass, American eel, and the Monarch Butterfly.
A large component of this work is outreach and education, especially with youth. We are trained to deliver Project Webfoot fieldtrips, so we can instill a sense of conservation for the wildlife and its habitat at a young age. We work very hard to instill a sense of stewardship in all of the public with our outreach and awareness campaigns.
