On Tuesday, Feb. 26th, join experts live from the field for this very special event. Sponsored by BC Ferries and in partnership with Pearson College UWC and BC Parks, Live It will be live streaming from Race Rocks, an ecological reserve located off Southern Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Students will connect in real-time to explore the Coast Salish People’s connections to land and sea and learn about the effects of human-related underwater noise on marine species.
This is an opportunity for students to hear traditional stories from the T’Sou-ke Nation, learn about our interconnected relationships with our environment, effects of underwater noise and current research on how to reduce impacts.
On Friday March 1st, join experts from Ocean Wise live at the Vancouver Aquarium. Sponsored by BC Ferries and in partnership with Ocean Wise, Live It will be streaming from the Steller sea lion enclosure. Students will connect in real-time with the Marine Mammal Rescue & Rehabilitation team to explore the impacts of ocean plastics and sea lion entanglement. Work with the Ocean Wise team and enjoy a behind-the-scenes look where they rescue 100 animals per year.
