On Saturday July 19, 2014 MLSS held our 2nd consecutive Beach Interpretation Program (BIP) at East Point beach on Saturna Island, in collaboration with Parks Canada and the SIMRES. The event was a huge success and gave members from the local community a chance to come out and see some of the marine life at their local beaches. A team of divers collected marine life from underwater and brought them to tanks onshore with biologists. Thank you to the RBC Blue Water Project for their previous grant money to support this program and to all of our wonderful volunteers who helped out both underwater and onshore!
MLSS is always looking for partners for continued support of this educational program. All of our programs are run entirely by volunteers. To support our Beach Interpretations and other MLSS programs please donate! A huge thank you to all of our incredible volunteers this year.
The Marine Life Sanctuaries Society uses our Beach Interpretation Program to engage local communities and increase awareness of our local marine environments. By connecting people directly with our local marine ecosystems, we hope that citizens will be stewards of marine life in BC. We encourage people to join us in our effort to educate and work towards creating marine sanctuaries throughout all of British Columbia.
