Salmon are a foundation species in British Columbia.

What does that mean? It means salmon are an integral element of B.C. ecosystems.

The Vancouver Maritime Museum has partnered with the Take a Stand Outreach Program to bring you an interactive virtual presentation about the value of healthy salmon habitats. On January 21 at 4:00 pm, Take a Stand for Salmon will showcase the natural beauty of British Columbia including its urban nature areas and unique coastal wilderness.

The presentation includes the screening of an award-winning documentary film and an interactive question and answer session.

Learn why wild salmon is a foundational species, examine the present threats to wild salmon populations and learn what you can do to help protect wild salmon.

Explore the vast beauty, ecological interconnections and cultural importance of the Great Bear Rainforest and the Salish Sea.

Explore the wild salmon habitats in our own backyards and find out how art, film and science can be used to protect urban salmon habitats.

Tickets are $5 or free for Vancouver Maritime Museum members.
