Under the Northwest Power Act, the
Northwest Power and Conservation Council
develops a Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Program that guides BPA actions in protecting, mitigating, and enhancing
the region's fish and wildlife affected by the
Federal Columbia River Power System (FCRPS).
The factsheets highlight some of the many projects implemented by Tribal governments,
states, other federal agencies, universities, and private vendors. Each of these
projects produces biological benefits to species impacted by the construction and
operation of the FCRPS. Taken together, these multiple and carefully coordinated
efforts produce solid and measurable success, and contribute to a legacy of environmental
stewardship and regional pride for generations to come.
