Great Blue Herons: Pandion Ecological Research Ltd. is continuing to monitor herons during the 2021 breeding season and would be very interested in any heron sightings that could help identify active breeding sites. This work comprises part of an ongoing heron inventory and stewardship project that has been funded by the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program, the Columbia Basin Trust, and by the Government of Canada in 2020. Heron sightings can be reported directly to Marlene Machmer via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by telephone (250 505-9978).
