The federal government announced yesterday as part of the budget that it has allocated $10 million over the next two years to support partnerships to implement fish habitat conservation. This is welcome news that will help improve aquatic habitats for fish and a wide range of other aquatic life, as well as provide multiple benefits through improved water quality and positive economic impacts for all Canadians. This is also news Canadian Wildlife Federation supporters and partners should take pride in as CWF staff worked hard to help generate support for this funding. We look forward to working with government to ensure this important program is a success.
