2015 was a busy year for us at M.C. Wright and Associates. Here are a few highlights:
This year, we designed and supervised the construction of more square footage of habitat than we ever have before. This includes:
2015 was an exciting year for the development our GIS department. Notable projects included the completion of 6 watershed assessments in the Nootka Sound region using GIS techniques, the processing and modeling of LiDAR data to design a restoration alcove pond, and working with Fisheries and Oceans Canada to map the potential effects of climate change on various commercial fisheries.
Commercial ELog – Supported by Fishermen
Our ELog program, initially funded by DFO, is going strong supported by almost 200 commercial fishermen who continue to use it for catch reporting.
Zeballos Community Project
A project that began with a flooded road problem became new habitat for vegetation, fish and wildlife. The creation of the habitat by the Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations soon became a community effort and an outdoor classroom. Elementary and secondary students and staff assisted us with revegetation of the new habitat and are monitoring progress with repeat Photo Station Monitoring photography. Read the full story on our Zeballos Blog.
Pacific Salmon Foundation Dinner
Along with staff and clients, we attended the Salmon Foundation Dinner on November 21st. We have participated for many years as a table sponsor. It was a great event with fabulous food.
We launched our new website in December that outlines our main areas of work; Biological Consulting, Software Development and Geomatics. We welcome your feedback.
We Won an Award!
We look forward to many great things in 2016!
Happy New Year!
