In 2019 the Wild Salmon Center launched the Babine Partnership in collaboration with the Babine River Foundation to advance our shared conservation goals in the Babine. The Babine River, a major tributary of the Skeena, is one of the world’s premier rivers for steelhead and a major salmon producer in the region. The Babine Partnership combines Wild Salmon Center’s international conservation experience—including its deep engagement in the Skeena River basin—with the Babine River Foundation’s regional expertise.
Together we are working to safeguard the Babine River and its wild fish populations for the long-term. Initiatives include conducting scientific monitoring to assess the Babine River basin’s water quantity and quality including temperature variations that could impact wild salmon and steelhead populations as well as ensuring the lower Babine River and its tributaries are protected from extensive logging and increased development.
