Living Oceans' Clear the Coast campaign organized a volunteer effort to collect over two tonnes of plastic and other marine debris from the shore of Sea Otter Cove on the northwest shore of Vancouver Island. Living Oceans would like to thank our great volunteers for their hard work. Funding for the project came from the generous contribution by the Government of Japan and its people. We also gratefully acknowledge the support of the Province of British Columbia, Ministry of Environment, the Vancouver Aquarium, the BC Parks’ Enhancement Fund and all those individuals and local businesses who donated food, supplies, equipment and time as well as all the individual donors who believe in us and what we do.
Dive hundreds of meters below the surface of B.C.'s coast with the Finding Coral Expedition. In June 2009 Living Oceans Society led the journey to the bottom of the sea on Canadas Pacific coast in search of deep sea corals. Using one person submarines, a team of international scientists made 30 dives to depths of over 500 meters and saw giant coral forests, darting schools of fish, and a seafloor carpeted in brittle stars.
