  2. Maintain, and where possible enhance, the ecological integrity of habitat for Vancouver lamprey.

  3. Increase scientific understanding of Vancouver lamprey through additional investigation of its taxonomic status, natural history, critical habitat and threats to the species’ persistence.

  4. Foster awareness of Vancouver lamprey and its conservation status, and encourage active local involvement in stewardship and habitat protection.
