  2. The Wilderness Committee, the Elliott Louis Gallery, and Arts Umbrella, a non-profit arts education centre for children and youth have partnered in the Spring 2012 to produce an art show featuring artwork by children and youth, celebrating the beauty of British Columbia's endangered animals and plants. The students hope their artwork will inspire people to take action to protect our endangered species. Arts Umbrella are working hard to compose artwork.

  3. This video is part of a series of nine Wilderness Committee-produced films on Protecting BC's Species at Risk.

    Persecuted by landowners, run over by cars, displaced by urban development, the American badger (Taxidea taxus) is one of British Columbia's most endangered mammals, with estimates placing the total population at less than 300 in the province.

  4. This video is part of a series of nine films on Protecting British Columbia's Species at Risk.

    The elusive western skink (Plestiodon skiltonianus) is one in only two lizard species that live in British Columbia. The skink is shy and has a striking blue tail meant to distract predators.

    In April 2011, Mike McKinlay and myself accompanied Elizabeth Vincer on a field trip to look for skinks at the Vaseux-Bighorn National Wildlife Area in the Okanagan Valley, one of the sites where the species is most abundant. The southern Okanagan region is developing fast, which means the skink is increasingly at risk of losing its habitat. The species was federally designated as “Special Concern” by COSEWIC (Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada) in 2002 due to its low population size and ongoing habitat lass. In BC, the Western Skink is blue-listed. Skinks play a significant role in the ecosystem and are an important prey item for other species at risk such as the endangered Desert Night snake (Hypsiglena chlorophaea) and the threatened Western Rattlesnake (Crotalus oreganus).
