Forage fish – like this sand lance – are an integral piece of the Salish Sea ecosystem. Without them, marine birds, orca, seals and the ecosystem as a whole would not exist in its present form. This is why we presented evidence on these species, including herring, to the National Energy Board’s assessment of the Kinder Morgan proposal.
The little things matter. Ask any watchmaker.
