Ever since I was a boy the Pacific has been my home. I have always dreamed of sharing my experiences under the sea, so others can see it how I do. This is my vision of the underwater playground called the Salish Sea.

The Salish Sea is the Pacific waters that run from Seattle to Vancouver and beyond. Puget Sound, the Strait of Georgia, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca are its major bodies of water. The life that exists here is incredible, from giant octopus to killer whales, the emerald waters house some of the world's most amazing wildlife. But being in close proximity to urban centers leaves the Salish Sea exposed to pollution and stormwater from the cities that surround it. For information on how you can help protect the Salish Sea and the Pacific, please take action here.

Message to Canadians: Conservation starts at home. So does protecting our Pacific. We are in this together.
