Still Creek clean up going on today!!! Check us out at @still_creek_streamkeepers #Vancouver #stream #cleanup #salmon #stewardship @stillmoonarts
bcHad a great time learning more about the important role of salt marsh and eelgrass habitats in carbon sequestration and sharing our research with a great bunch of learners today at the #cityofvancouver blue carbon forum! Thanks for the invite! @adanyluk @cityofvancouver #conservation @raincoastconservation #marsh #saltmarsh #eelgrass #salmon
Sponsor 1km of my 122km bike ride for $10 - helping @Raincoast safeguard coastal carnivores! 🚴♀️🚴♀️ https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/raincoast-conservation-foundation/p2p/nadeea/team/applied-conservation-science-lab-team/member/granfondo-for-carnivores/
Another beauty day for sampling in the Fraser estuary! Here is a juvenile Chinook we captured in the eelgrass with deltaport in the background. Structures like the port causeway impact the natural migration pathways that juvenile salmon need to reach important habitats in the estuary. @jackhall437 @mistymacduffee @raincoastconservation
We though we would remind folks that we have a reusable bag for sale and proceeds from this are used to support our Safeguarding Coastal Carnivores campaign...
Fraser Connectivity Project team pulling the fyke net this morning in the rain! This set up deployed is to sample on top of the high marsh to investigate juvenile salmon use of these habitats. Four months after we started juvenile salmon are still arriving in the Fraser estuary, Chinook and sockeye fry are what we are catching in June! Thanks @selise10, @mistymacduffee. #SalmonConservation
Would you like to join us here this fall? Competition coming soon. Watch this space. Photo by @AprilBencze.
This morning's field work site... through wind and rain @raincoastconservation @dave.scott.bc https://www.instagram.com/p/BkFxWH_jEC4/
As the bear monitoring season wraps up, paying homage to our noninvasive hair snag stations, and all of the flora and fauna that play an important role in building our sites, filling our field days, and gathering those crucial wisps of hair. #BearResearch
That dude on top though.
Afternoon lesson plan aboard @raincoastconservation research vessel Achiever was windward sailing in the Salish Sea. Plying the Coast Salish territory through the power of wind and tide.
Last day sampling hair for 2018 season @Raincoast - Gitga'at Nation bear monitoring project 🐻 @UVicGeog @hensonbiol #dreamteam
Class is in session! Raincoast vessel Achiever is a floating classroom exploring the Salish Sea with conservation leaders of tomorrow.
Which way is up? End of a long but beautiful bear monitoring day in Gitga’at territory.
I am very very excited to be returning to the rivers I spent all of last fall on, watching salmon like this chum battling their way upriver. This time there won't be any salmon...
