It takes 2 seconds to sign the Pledge to Protect the Great Bear Sea

As the spring flowers bloom on land, so do an incredible abundance and diversity of species that inhabit the clean temperate waters of the Great Bear Sea, which borders Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest.

It's one of the most biodiverse coldwater environments in the world, and is "inhabited by marine mammal species including resident and transient killer whales, humpback whales, fin whales, sei whales, Steller sea lions and harbour porpoises. Over 2,000 runs of Pacific salmon return to spawn here, in addition to several populations of Pacific herring. Myriad algae, corals and invertebrates blanket the ocean floor." (Pacific Wild)

But here's the kicker, the Great Bear Sea is not protected. In fact, less than 1% of British Columbia’s marine environment is fully protected. It's the tankers, unsustainable fisheries, pollution, and climate change which all threaten to destabilize this coastal ecosystem and economy.

If we can inspire a few people to follow our lead, then we’re a step closer to creating a better future for generations to come.
