Photos of Creatures of Habitat Map Icons (2009)

ASSOCIATED EVENT: Creatures of Habitat After hours of data input, matching post-it notes with numbered icons, Judith, along with volunteers Wendy, Kimia & others, have almost completed transferring the data. Although some post-it notes still need to be matched with numbered icons, a few post-it notes have no numbers, only obscure place-references, and many icons are not numbered, & may have actually been misplaced during the map transferring process.

Coastal Conversations

Almost half of us now live within 150 km of the ocean. Shoreline development has meant the destruction of approximately 87 million hectares of coastal habitat worldwide. In the Puget Sound approximately 58 per cent of the coastal habitat has been lost while in the Salish Sea (formerly known as the Georgia Strait), this loss is estimated at 18 per cent.

Coastal Stewardship Community Mapping

Working with the Coastal and Oceans Resource Analysis Laboratory (CORAL), and SeaChange Marine Conservation Society, the Community Mapping Collaboratory is conducting research into how community mapping can support coastal stewardship initiatives.

The geographic location of the study is Saanich Inlet and Peninsula. The thematic focus is sense of place, ecological awareness, bioregional understanding, and lifestyle choices.
