2007 Events

During the summer of 2007, Marine Matters had booths at two exciting community events, Skidegate Days and the Tlell Fall Fair. Both booths focused on learning more about the amazing creatures that inhabit the oceans, promoting ocean stewardship and, of course, having fun!

In addition to community events, Marine Matters hosted a number of guest speakers on Haida Gwaii this past year. Issues such as Aquatic Invasive Species, Chronic Oil and Oiled Seabirds and the Oil & Gas Moratorium were discussed. Thanks to everyone who came out and participated in these workshops. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for more exciting events in 2008!
