CANCELLED: Due to weather.
Unfortunately there is an expected 20-30mm of rain forcasted for March 14th. These conditions are not optimal for collecting microplastics. The next survey will be March 28th.
Everyone is welcome to look into the state of microplastics on our local beaches. Spend a few hours helping out and leave with a better understanding of microplastics and their potential impact on the environment.
Interested volunteers can email Britt in advance at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Rain or shine so dress for the weather! And always bring rainboots for retrieving water from the shallow ocean (part of the survey process).
The Ucluelet Aquarium is a unique catch and release facility which provides an up close and personal encounter with a diversity of fish and invertebrates from the local waters of Barkley and Clayoquot Sounds. Their mission is to raise awareness about local marine biodiversity and promote respect for the ocean environment.
For full details of the opportunities to be involved and to discuss the possibilities, email the volunteer coordinator.
