Planning for Bird Habitat Protection: BC Guidelines for Local Governments, Developers and Planners is a research report completed as the research portion of my major project completed as part of my Master of Community Planning at Vancouver Island University. Throughout the completion of this research for my major project, I consulted with local government staff members, developers and non-profit representatives. In combination with academic reference material, fieldwork and the application of my background in land use planning, environmental management and ornithology I developed a framework that supported the creation of my draft guidebook Planning for Bird Habitat Protection: BC Guidelines for Local Governments, Developers and Planners. This work was created as a Planning Practice Guidebook which distilled the key findings from the research to lay out specific recommendations for managing distinct habitat types in local government jurisdiction to benefit community environmental sustainability through maintenance of healthy avian habitats. The Research Report contains the background material that underlies the completion of this project to provide guidelines for effective urban sustainability advancement through excellent management of avian habitat.
