THE SALISH SEA​

We are located on Saturna Island, BC, in the middle of the Salish Sea. Although we feel remote, we’re within a major transportation corridor, surrounded by a population of 8M people. This is also the habitat of an estimated 37 species of marine mammals, and more than 3400 species of birds, fish and invertebrates. This is the ideal place to study the convergence of wildlife and humanity. Learn more
