Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) are areas of the ocean legally protected for long-term conservation. There are three remarkable MPAs right here off BC's west coast. Under water volcanoes, sea mounts and glass sponges are found in these areas along with a wide variety of animals adapted to live in these extreme conditions. Heidi Gartner, Invertebrates Collections Manager and Researcher, explains the museum's role in researching and collecting data and samples from these unique areas.
