Online NEMO Talk: Tracking Dungeness Crab across the Salish Sea

Our World Oceans Day festival is back for 2023!

Join us for our fourth NEMO Talk of the week: Tracking Dungeness Crab across the Salish Sea

Driven by communities and led by the Hakai Institute, Sentinels of Change is a decade-long project that uses light traps to investigate the ecology and dynamics of a critically important species in our inland sea: Dungeness crab. Throughout the spring and summer, groups of dedicated volunteers check the traps regularly and watch the crabs (and other species) come and go.

Online NEMO Talk: Eelgrass and Beyond

Our World Oceans Day festival is back for 2023!

Join us for our third NEMO Talk of the week: Eelgrass and Beyond: Protecting Resilient Estuaries on the Sunshine Coast.

For the last two decades, SeaChange has worked with communities surrounding the Salish Sea to conserve, restore, and protect nearshore marine areas, so vital as nurseries for salmon and all life they depend upon. As climate changes become more impactful to these vital marine nurseries, it is increasingly important to protect those that have a higher capacity to adapt to rising sea levels and increasing storm events.
