ESCI 517 - Advanced State of the Salish Sea Ecosystem


The Salish Sea extends from the north end of the Georgia Strait to the west end of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the south end of the Puget Sound, and over 7 million people live within its drainage basin (including the cities of Vancouver, Seattle, Victoria, Olympia, Nanaimo, Bellingham, Everett, Port Angeles, Port Townsend, and Tacoma). The diversity of habitats, human uses, and governances contained within the Salish Sea can lead to management challenges. This course will explore some of the most salient issues facing the Salish Sea today, covering a wide range of topics that address the science, policy, and management of the Salish Sea ecosystem. This course includes attending the Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference which normally takes place in the spring of even number years in Seattle or Vancouver, B.C.
