We‘re also working with government, First Nations, businesses and other groups to integrate ocean conservation, ecosystem resilience and the sustainable use of marine resources.
We believe that Canada can be a world leader in building prosperous economies based on healthy oceans.
In our pursuit of this vision, we’re also working with the world's best scientists to advance solutions that will reverse the unsustainable exploitation of our oceans. This will ensure economic development supports the biodiversity we all depend on—whether or not we live near the sea.
Bowie Seamount – Sgaan Kinghlas
Imagine an underwater mountain teeming with sea life and rising 3100 metres - almost 2 miles high - from the ocean floor. That's higher than Whistler Mountain and almost as tall as the third highest peak in Canada.
Bowie Seamount is a veritable oasis in the open ocean for an astonishing abundance of marine life. The largest in a protected chain of three underwater mountains, it lies 180 kilometres west of Haida Gwaii, off British Columbia's West Coast.
