22 Nov 2018 An evening celebrating habitat protection, partnership and ocean expeditions
On Tuesday, November 20, Oceana Canada hosted an evening to celebrate habitat protection and ocean exploration on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. We brought together First Nations, non-profit organizations, Ministers and Senators.
Since Oceana Canada was established three years ago, we’ve been on three expeditions to photograph, film and research unique marine ecosystems and to bring them to life for the public and policymakers.
In Canada, our expeditions are a collaborative effort. We believe by partnering to share resources, knowledge and expertise, we can better understand and protect the ocean. Thank you to our expedition partners for making all of this possible: Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Ocean Networks Canada, the Central Coast Indigenous Resource Alliance, and the Haida, Heiltsuk and Kitasoo/Xai’xais Nations.
