UBC Properties Trust Provides September Update on Wesbrook Eagles’ Nest
UBC Properties Trust has sent the following message as an update to the status of the eagles nest on Wesbrook Place.
An eagle’s nest was established in this area prior to 2011 and has been active since 2017. At that time. A Qualified Environmental Professional (QEP) was engaged to monitor nest activity and establish protocols to protect the eagles and their habitat. Based on recommendations of the QEP, development in the area was revised to provide a vegetative buffer to protect additional trees near the nest.
An eagle pair continues to nest in this area. In anticipation of new residential construction on Lot 6 across Ross Drive from the eagles’ nest, UBC and UBC Properties Trust are taking further action on the advice of the Ministry of Forests, to support the nesting pair.
The protected species management plan for this area was developed with guidance from the BC Ministry of Forests and wildlife conservation experts.
