Lecture Topic

 

BC’s Fraser River Estuary is under immense threat from both climate change and human activities. This wetland is a biodiversity hotspot that is vital habitat for a large number of plants and animals, including millions of migrating Pacific salmon and shorebirds.

Since 1827, human activities have caused the disappearance and degradation of these important fish and wildlife habitats. This continues today, with even more development, pollution, industrial activities and spread of invasive species. However, in the 21st century sea-level rise is likely to pose an even greater danger, unless we do something to protect this incredible ecosystem.

In this talk, Eric Balke will tell us about his work protecting the Fraser River Estuary, and his research into ways we can protect it against both present and future threats.
