TimberWest donates $40k for salmon habitat

TimberWest added another $40,000 to the more than $1 million it has donated to the Pacific Salmon Foundation

TimberWest added another $40,000 to the more than $1 million it has donated to the Pacific Salmon Foundation, an organization dedicated to “rebuilding healthy, sustainable and naturally diverse Pacific Salmon stocks” in B.C.

“The Pacific Salmon Foundation is a leader in salmon science and habitat protection and restoration,” said, Jeff Zweig, President and CEO of TimberWest. “We are very proud of the work the Foundation has done to date, and we look forward to our continued partnership.”

TimberWest’s partnership with PSF began in 2002 with the intention of restoring Pacific salmon streams on Vancouver Island.

Contributions by TimberWest have supported the hundreds of dedicated volunteers and researchers who monitor watersheds, develop rehabilitation projects, and advocate for the conservation and protection of Pacific salmon species, said a media release.

“It’s partners like TimberWest who make it possible for us to continue our research, outreach and education on wild Pacific Salmon, one of B.C.’s most iconic species,” said Foundation CEO Brian Riddell.

“The health of our salmon is a direct indication of the health of our ecosystems, and this year’s generous donation will be integral to the Foundation as we deliver on our science, research and habitat restoration projects on Vancouver Island.”
