Flood Prevention versus Fish Habitat
Lena Azeez from Watershed Watch Salmon Society is working with communities from British Columbia’s lower mainland to draft and pass a resolution that underscores their commitment to safeguard fish habitat. This sort of sentiment often gets lost when flood prevention strategies are implemented; however, one shouldn’t come at the expense of the other. Fish habitat and impacts on fish health need to be considered when designing strategies for flood control, so says Lina and the community leaders she’s working with.
