Skeena Bank Conservancy

About This Conservancy

Skeena Bank Conservancy was established as part of government’s land use decision for the North Coast planning area.

This conservancy consists of the extensive mudflats and shallow intertidal passages around DeHorsey Island and along the lower Skeena River. This area protects important migratory and wintering waterfowl habitat, and critical juvenile salmon habitat. Several rare species, including the red-listed western grebe, and the blue-listed trumpeter swan and great blue heron, have been recorded in the wetlands.

Conservancy Size: 2,594 hectares – 51 hectares of upland and 2,543 hectares of foreshore
Date Established: June 27, 2008
