Prioritizing Ecological Restoration Sites in Hope, BC
This is a research project I conducted myself for a class. It aims to map sites in district of Hope located in Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD), British Columbia that have the highest priority for ecological restoration. All of FVRD’s environment is vulnerable to farming and growing development, therefore, needs protection as well as restoration for a sustainable future. Several organizations such as Fraser Valley Watershed Coalition are working towards the goal to restore and enhance FVRD’s ecology; however, there are no projects underway in Hope. I have used GIS and literature review to identify sites in Hope that have the potential to succeed in ecological restoration and would be the most efficient to implement. Though this project requires further studies as this topic is complex and requires systems thinking.
