Sometimes a small seemingly insignificant act of stewardship can make a difference AND give an unexpected reward.

Watch the video for the full story (hint: there's a surprise if you watch the whole thing!)

Message to Canadians: satisfaction can be found in the smallest acts... so act!

Great job on the stewardship of Barkley Sound, Peter, even if it is only one small step at a time. I am looking forward to partaking in the stewardship program that you have been developing for MLSS. You, yourself, have made great strides so perhaps with many hands we can accomplish a great deal for Howe Sound. Best regards, Sheila

Peter, it's great to see how you care for even "non-diving" related items. All the boaters in your area should be thankful. I am sure the orcas just came by to check the quality of your work, and to say "Hi Peter. Nice to see you". :-)

Thanks to Peter Mieras for giving his time to repair sign boundaries to help protect areas for marine life. I hope to dive in this area sometime with your facility and view the wildness of our pacific coast. I have enjoyed diving in the browning pass and area north of Vancouver Island but hope to try areas closer to Victoria.

I dive up hear at least once a year. It's a great spot and Peter and Kathy take their responsibilities to the local environment very seriously.

This area is one of BC's treasures.
