Wetland Ambassadors

The wetland ambassador program is creating a network of wetland supporters that can actively promote the value of BC wetlands and their conservation at every opportunity.  Wetland ambassadors will be drawn from indigenous and non-indigenous youth, seniors, representatives from conservation groups, members of the local communities and schools. Ambassadors will distribute key fobs, stickers and pins displaying a QR code that links to frequently updated wetland conservation news and events.   They will be educated about wetland habitats in general and knowledgeable about all the go-to resources available in the province.   The pilot project will focus on the status of fragmented wetlands in the Okanagan watershed, specifically the Armstrong-Spallumcheen-Vernon area.    As part of their duties, wetland ambassadors will schedule regular reach outs to provincial government and NGOs to confirm that their published materials are current
