Adam Taylor will talk about the work of the Marine Life Sanctuaries Society. “Making the world a better place, one no-take marine protected sanctuary at a time” At least 3 of the sponge reefs identified in Howe Sound so far are diveable! Sponge reefs in Howe sound exist at depths of 90-160 feet, and are some of the only diveable sponge reefs in the world!

Imagine a Howe Sound where biodiversity is protected, people and companies benefit from a sustainable economy, and current and future residents and visitors are able to enjoy the region’s natural, cultural, and social resources.
