Conservation of Wild Salmon: COSEWIC and The Species at Risk Act- Raincoast Speaker Series

Salmon are often referred to as the lifeblood of the coast, and few animals are as recognized and revered as the five species of salmon spawning in BC. Dr. John Reynolds and his lab at SFU have been studying the ecological role of salmon in BC for years, and in his current role as Chair of the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada, he oversees the assessment, listing and monitoring of threatened and endangered stocks and runs throughout the province.

How do fluctuations in natural populations affect the rest of the ecosystem? How do we assess these trends? What can we infer from declines, and how can we work to reverse them? Join us for a fascinating talk from one of the leading experts in the field.
