Looking Back at a Remarkable Year at SkeenaWild

And Excited For The Year Ahead

Our Achievements Are Your Achievements

Over the last 12 months, SkeenaWild, our collaborators, and many of you in our communities have contributed to several accomplishments benefiting the Skeena Watershed and its salmon and steelhead. These include a reduction on the impacts of fisheries and an increase in Indigenous-led land use planning initiatives and habitat protection efforts. These proactive approaches not only protect critical habitats but also foster sustainable development and job opportunities for local communities. The B.C Mineral Act is to be reformed after Gitxaala and Ehattesaht First Nations won their Supreme Court case against the free entry claim-staking system meaning mineral claims will no longer be granted automatically without consideration of other values on the land. SkeenaWild is proud to have acted as an intervenor in support of the case. 2023 also saw us increase pressure on the Pacific Salmon Commission and Treaty to make Alaskan interception a high priority for Canada. None of this is possible without your support and your tax deductible donation help us protect Skeena salmon for years to come.
