Howe Sound/Átl’ḵa7tsem is a deep-water fjord located in the heart of the Salish Sea. Its waters are ecologically rich and support thriving cultures, livelihoods, and communities. Being directly adjacent to the growing metropolis of Vancouver, Átl’ḵa7tsem (one of three Squamish Nation place names for the Sound) faces unique opportunities and challenges to preserving its social and ecological integrity. During her talk on January 14th, Fiona will dive into the complex and inspiring trajectory of Átl’ḵa7tsem’s ocean as it has morphed from an industrial wasteland to a recovering ecosystem that supports a thriving community and culture of stewardship. Fiona is a PhD candidate in the University of British Columbia’s Zoology department and works with MakeWay Charitable Society and SeaChange Marine Conservation Society on regional marine restoration and spatial planning initiatives.
