Save Marbled Murrelet and their nests, Old Growth

Welcome to Friends of Fairy Creek (FOFC) GoFundMe page. We are an organization of concerned community members and scientists who have filed an Action in the Supreme Court of British Columbia to save the Marbled Murrelet (MaMu) and its nesting habitat, Old Growth trees. The species and its habitat are specifically protected under the Migratory Birds Treaty, the Migratory Birds Convention Act and Migratory Birds Regulations. There is no exception, the bird and its habitat must be preserved because they don’t build a nest. The Old Growth tree stands are their nests. This is true for other protected species as well. The ancient trees must be preserved or many species will face extinction. If successful, our recently filed Court action, will protect MaMu and other at risk Old Growth dependent species that inhabit the last unlogged watershed of Old Growth trees at Fairy Creek on South Vancouver Island. The first Court hearing is set for the week of September 5, 2023. To read more, click here.

Your contribution will help Friends of Fairy Creek protect and preserve the Marbled Murrelet by saving the remaining Old Growth forests, particularly by preserving Fairy Creek, one of the last intact Old Growth forests on South Vancouver Island. The Marbled Murrelet relies on Old Growth as it falls from flight to nest and lay its one egg per year on the mossy upper platform limbs of Old Growth tree stands.
