Town Hall – Protecting Our Marine Environment

Proposed National Marine Conservation Area in the Southern Straight of Georgia

Monday May 14th, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Prospect Lake Community Hall

Victoria, British Columbia V9E2H5

You are invited to a very exciting town hall. The Governments of Canada, British Columbia, and First Nations are assessing the feasibility of a national marine conservation area reserve in the southern Strait of Georgia.

A national marine conservation area reserve would help to conserve this vital marine ecosystem while allowing human uses to continue in an ecologically sustainable manner. However, the Strait of Georgia is one of the busiest waterways on the Pacific Coast of North America with multiple overlapping jurisdictions – so the path forward is complex.
