Living rivers: Education, engagement, and signage to conserve wild Atlantic salmon and protect salmon habitat in Newfoundland and Labrador 2021

Recipient: Intervale Associates Inc.
Approved Amount: $38,262   Year Approved: 2021

Through its “Living Rivers” salmon conservation initiative, Intervale will target four objectives: 1) reduce illegal fishing and sale of wild salmon, 2) prevent threats to salmon habitat, 3) teach best practices and educate about salmon conservation in NL, and 4) extend awareness to vastly more people and in new areas of the Province. This will be accomplished through 30 additional signs posted in Newfoundland and NunatuKavut; 15 in-person and online informational school presentations; 3 fly-tying workshops; increased variety of projects reported in the newsletters; 2 newsletters and one blog distributed more widely; three trailhead guest boxes and one interpretive panel; and a habitat assessment of Bottom Brook, building on site-specific 2020 stewardship efforts. The project will be strengthened and enlarged through collaboration with several new and existing partners.
