Last week we had our first meeting of the Pender Harbour Coastal Waters Monitoring Team up at the Iris Griffith Centre. Thanks to funding from the Sitka Foundation we are now ready to begin establishing four new long term monitoring studies on sea grasses, forage fish, salmon escapement and the intertidal flora and fauna of Pender Harbour. This program is vital for the long term protection and enhancement of our precious coastal waters and will allow us to make more informed decisions in finding solutions to issues we may face down the road. This is the main reason behind the building of PODS so that we can establish a whole range of research and monitoring studies for the benefit of generations to come.
If anyone would like to join in this exciting enterprise please fill out the form on the contact page. We would be delighted to hear from you!
