Living Oceans’ 2015 efforts to Clear the Coast of marine debris brought in an amazing five metric tonnes of debris, mainly composed of plastics of Japanese origin. In an effort to put a dent in the enormous volume of plastic waste that is washing up on northern Vancouver Island shores, this year we intensified our efforts with more volunteers on the ground and more ground covered. We organized two major expeditions: the first returned to Sea Otter Cove and the second ventured into new territory for us in the Scott Islands.
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.
