Protecting BC’s Sea of Glass: An Evening of Action and Dialogue

Join CPAWS-BC to celebrate the one year anniversary of the protection of the Hecate Strait and Queen Charlotte Sound glass sponge reefs. Hear how British Columbians, like you, spoke out against the weak protection measures originally proposed and successfully transformed this into being one of the strongest Marine Protected Areas in Canada.

While celebrating this win, we must not forget that the ocean still needs our help.

On February 13th raise your glass in celebration and raise your voice to demand protection for BC's ocean, including unprotected glass sponge reefs and critical orca habitat.

Together we can leverage this conservation win. Together we can protect even more of the ocean. We need your voice!
