Response Statement - Pacific Water Shrew

This shrew is restricted to British Columbia’s Lower Mainland and adjacent low valleys. It is rare there, associated with freshwater streams and adjacent wet habitats. Urban development, agriculture, and forestry have reduced the amount and quality of habitat. There is an inferred and projected ongoing decline in habitat and subpopulations in much of its range in Canada.
