Since the "Swim for the Salmon" we have generated tremendous comunity support in favor of our initiative. And so, the swim was an incredible success! Local politicians are suddenly showing interest in this project which aims to address an issue that, prior to this year, very few people knew anything about. We have applied for a grant through the FWCP to investigate the historical fish usage of this area as some people are unsure as to whether or not salmon migrated to the head of Salmon Inlet. We will hear back from the FWCP by February but our efforts are not restricted to their funding and we will be pushing until this issue has been corrected. When the funding comes through we will be working with Sunshine Coast's Pelagic Technologies Inc., to conduct a lake sediment core analysis, which will determine the type of species that existed in Clowhom Lakes prior to the Dam. By better understanding the history of this area we will be more capable of restoring it to its natural biologically diverse healthy state.
Elsewhere fantastic efforts are also being realized, see Elwa River Dam Deconstruction.
Keep fighting the good fight,
