To promote the preservation of farmland and associated wildlife habitat in the Fraser delta through sustainable farming and land stewardship.
About DELTA FARMLAND AND WILDLIFE TRUST
Delta Farmland and Wildlife Trust (DF&WT or the Trust) is a non-profit charitable society established in Delta, BC in 1993.
Our board of directors represents a partnership of farmers, naturalists, and community-minded individuals working co-operatively as a team to find solutions to land-use problems on farmland in the community. Recognising the significance of the Fraser delta to large numbers of migratory and resident birds, the Trust was formed to empower local farmers and naturalists to co-operatively implement farm stewardship programs and promote sustainable agriculture. The Trust, along with many local residents, believes that the survival of the soil-based agricultural industry in Delta is essential to the survival of the nationally and internationally important species of wildlife in this area. With this in mind, we work with farmers on a cost-shared basis to encourage sustainable farming practices that consider wildlife needs.
