A provincial foundation is providing more than $6 million in funding for fish and wildlife conservation across B.C.

More than 150 projects across the province are being granted funding, with 11 in the Peace/Omineca area.

Those 11 projects are receiving more than $400,000 of the funding.

Two of the projects receiving money are the Peace River Prescribed Burns (Liard Burns) project and the Wood Bison Conservation Management project.

The first is receiving $100,000 to aid its prescribed burning program which would sustain and improve the winter range area for ungulates. The second project is receiving $25,000 to study wood bisons’ habitat and seasonal movements.

The non-profit society calls for annual proposals to re-invest money it receives from hunting, fishing, guide-outfitting and trapping license surcharge fees.
