Protect These Canadian Places

Chilling in a Fjord
Check out the twelve Marine Protected Areas proposed by the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society.

The story in the Guardian has great descriptions of these currently healthy (for now) marine areas in Canada. Each one deserves an Eco Ocean post alone. Now they need protection.

My favorites are South Coast Fjords (guess I'm partial to sea turtles) and Lancaster Sound.

Who knew Canada had such marine biodiversity? They did, and I'm glad for it.

See the proposed MPAs here.
