The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority's New Brighton Park Shoreline Habitat Restoration Project has received a gold rating under the Stewardship Centre for B.C.’s Green Shores® for Coastal Development program. The New Brighton Park Shoreline Habitat Restoration Project is a collaboration between the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation, and Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. The project enhances fish and wildlife habitat in Burrard Inlet, and increases public access to nature. Since project construction was completed in September 2017, juvenile salmon have been observed using the tidal wetland as a stopover on their way through Burrard Inlet.
