Bella Coola Estuary Conservancy

About This Conservancy

Bella Coola Estuary Conservancy was established as a part of government’s land use decision in the Central Coast planning area. The conservancy is situated where freshwater from the Bella Coola River empties into the North Bank Arm, creating an area rich in biodiversity.

This critical estuarine habitat is used by migratory birds, fish and mammal species. Juvenile pink, chum, coho, chinook salmon, and cutthroat trout use the estuary. As do grizzly bears, and numerous species of birds including trumpeter swans, Barrow’s goldeneyes, and American widgeons.

Conservancy Size: 269 hectares – 138 hectares of upland and 131 hectares of foreshore.

Date Established: June 27, 2008

Location

The conservancy is located approximately two kilometres west of Bella Coola.
