The Vaseux-Bighorn National Wildlife Area (NWA) is located in the south Okanagan–Similkameen region of British Columbia. The NWA was established in 1979 to protect habitat for species deemed, at the time, to be special and important; including the charismatic California bighorn sheep, which was considered endangered. The Vaseux-Bighorn NWA provides significant habitat to species at risk as well as many species of migratory birds and other wildlife. The NWA is a dynamic natural system influenced by erosion, flooding, fire, grazing, and other natural processes. The NWA is important not only as habitat for local wildlife but also is part of an important habitat corridor for migratory species.
