Healthy Oceans. Healthy Communities.

What We're Doing

Living Oceans Society is working to help build an effective network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) that links important habitats along B.C.’s coast, starting with the North and Central Coast region. All of our initiatives feed into ocean planning processes.

We have provided the conservation community’s perspective at the provincial and First Nations planning tables where we work with the other stakeholders to build a plan to better manage our resources and ensure a healthy ocean.

To support this work, Living Oceans has researched and analyzed current management practices for MPAs and fishing bycatch, and has gathered data in deep sea ecosystems (see Reports & Publications).

We also provide a free online library of maps illustrating our coast’s ecological riches that are essential for marine planning.
