The Port of Vancouver is proposing to double the size of the terminal at Deltaport, in Tsawwassen, putting further stress on the Fraser Estuary which has already lost over 80% of its natural habitat.

The Fraser Estuary, just 30 minutes outside of Vancouver, is home to hundreds of species and is critical habitat for juvenile salmon as they move from the river to the ocean.
