The Fraser River Delta has received the highest conservation designations for its birds and large areas have been assigned for their conservation. An important step to assure the continuation of the conservation measures undertaken over the past 30 years is to bring together stakeholders around a common vision.
In 1987, I coauthored a report on the international signficance of birds on the Fraser River Delta in British Columbia, Canada. Many of the report's recommendations were implemented which helped stabilize and contributed to the recovery of its birdlife. The delta lies just south of Vancouver where there are many pressures on the land base. The 30 year reveiw calls on interested parties to develop a common vision and mobilize combined efforts to conserve and to celebrate the presence of the millions of birds that annually use the delta. A portion of sales of my artwork will go this cause.
