Presentation and discussion about Indigenous Heritage and Ecological Conservation in the Salish Sea.
In the Salish Sea, a range of development pressures threatens the deep connections to place and the ecosystems that sustain them. In this free webinar, our five panellists guided discussions about the potential for on-the-ground actions and higher-level policy initiatives that lead to the protection of valued ecosystems and at the same time honour Indigenous connections to the land.
