A word to share from the David Suzuki Foundation:
Here’s our chance to protect British Columbia’s coastal waters.
A vast majority of British Columbians want to see more than 30 per cent of our ocean area protected. Currently less than 3 per cent is.
This is a key time to make sure your MLA knows that British Columbians like you support strong protection and conservation in coastal waters so they can ensure that marine protected areas are part of the plan for our coast.
Please send an email to your MLA today to say British Columbians like you support strong protection and conservation for our coastal waters.
During the past several years, the province of B.C., First Nations and many stakeholders have been planning how to manage British Columbia’s coastal waters. That includes where and how to limit activities that can harm the marine ecosystems that provide us with so much.
There are some industry lobbyists who don’t want to see an increase in conservation areas, so it is important to voice your support for strong conservation for these precious coastal waters.
Without it, this historic opportunity could pass us by.
And become an Ocean Keeper to help protect the ocean you love.
