Shifting learning online during the pandemic

Two hands of a white person holds up a plastic transparent rectangular box. An olive green juvenile salmon is seen inside it, in front of a blurred background of Fraser river estuary.

Raincoast was one week away from setting sail aboard our floating classroom, Achiever, when the pandemic abruptly brought those trips to a halt.

Although immersive learning is irreplaceable, considering the situation, Raincoast quickly shifted our learning online and launched our Coastal Insights live and interactive weekly webinar series to help provide an engaging learning experience focussed on British Columbia’s coastal environments, key species, ecological principles and conservation issues.

Each episode explored a fascinating topic with guest speakers lending their expertise and insights that spanned science, photography, Indigenous stewardship and conservation in coastal BC.

This summer we are also piloting a stewardship program with youth from the Tsawwassen Nation.

Investigate. Inform. Inspire.
