Help Establish Canada’s First Marine Wildlife Area at Scott Islands Provincial Park
The Scott Islands, located off the northwest coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, are home to over two million breeding birds:
Every day, these birds use the waters off the Scott Islands to forage for food. Some travel over 100 km from the islands in search of crustaceans and fish for themselves and their chicks.
But these waters remain unprotected and under constant threat from oil pollution, ship traffic and human disturbance. It has been 2 years since
Environment Canada held public information sessions on establishing a protected area here, yet today these marine waters remain unprotected.
Nature Canada urges all Canadians to tell the Governments of Canada and British Columbia that it is time to establish this country’s first marine wildlife area.
