British Columbians want our coastal waters protected

Now is a critical time for British Columbia’s coastal waters.
During the past several years, the province of B.C. and First Nations’ governments have been creating a plan that includes where and how to limit activities that can harm the marine ecosystems we depend on. These marine plans will soon be ready for public review.
Currently, less than three per cent of our ocean area is protected. The vast majority of British Columbians want to see that raised to more than 30 per cent. But some industry lobbyists want no increase in conservation areas.
Make sure your MLA knows British Columbians like you support strong protection and conservation of our coastal waters so they can ensure that marine protected areas are part of the plan for our coast.
Thank you for writing to your MLA today, voicing your support for strong conservation for our precious coastal waters.
Without your support, this historic opportunity could pass us by.
