The Fraser Estuary Research Collaborative (FERC) has been generously supported with three years of funding from the Sitka Foundation. Starting summer 2022, cohorts of Sustainability Scholars will work with mentors from NGO and other partner organizations to produce applied research on the critical and highly imperilled estuarine ecosystem adjacent to the UBC Vancouver campus.
