In order to fund our local stewardship and conservation programs, we made a local DVD about the ocean, called "Kelp and Critters: A journey through 4 seasons of marine life in the Pacific Northwest".

We made a DVD as a souvenir for tourists, and to extract parts of it and make it available to high schools and other educational institutes. It took a bit of time and effort and it was a success on all fronts.

Take a look at the video for an underwater tour of BC's coastal waters.

Message to Canadians: You can make a difference with simple tools and a bit of time. Tell your local story!

Fantastic DVD and when you are diving there you actually see alot of these fantastic creatures from the DVD and thats not always the case when somebody is promoting diving places.

Thanks for a outstanding stay this september wih Wolf Eels, Giant Octopus, hunting Humpbacks and lots more:)

I have two copies of this… one for myself and one to lend to friends to show them what's available to see in BC diving. One of these days I'll actually get to dive there myself :-)

I have this DVD and it's an amazing in what it shows of the beauty of our local underwater environment. I would recommend it to anyone interested in the diverse wildlife in the waters off the BC coast.

I know Peter and his acts of local stewardship are sometimes big, sometimes small but certainly continual. Well worth supporting his efforts to keep our oceans clean and healthy.

It is so important to realize what we have under the water. Scuba diving in the Pacific is one of the most wonderful experiences because of all the life. We need healthy oceans to continue to have such an amazing world right beneath us. This video shows just some of the life that any diver can see.
