In this issue of Wingspan, we spotlight the threats to shorebirds from continued industrialisation at Roberts Bank 2 and the dwindling bird numbers being challenged by Indigenous land guardians across BC. With thanks to Melissa Hafting and Alice Sun, we highlight young birders across BC who are also at the forefront of the growing interest in birding and citizen science.
In this issue, we expand our coverage throughout British Columbia and offer photography, birding, and habitat restoration stories, tips, and tools to help you make a sustainable impact on preserving BC’s biodiversity; with a special focus on how we continue our work in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.
