Why is the Salish Sea so rich with life?
I have come to see that the vitality of my home waters of Átl’ka7tsem /Howe Sound are intimately tied to the health of the larger Salish Sea, of which we are a part. This got me out exploring various corners of the Salish Sea from Desolation Sound to Seattle. In these travels I have found that the Salish Sea is a giant mixing bowl where nutrients from mountains and the deep offshore Pacific are stirred together by tidal currents into life-giving waters. And that this big sprawling inland sea is a single interconnected body of life, filled with extraordinary wild neighbours.
