Land use changes and developments have led to a loss of natural estuarine habitat in British Columbia. Here is an excellent video produced by Leanna Boyer, co-chair of the Seagrass Conservation Working Group of British Columbia.
A 7 minute video introduction to the Community Mapping Network and the shoreline videos available for many shores in BC.
These are the small first order streams that matter for BC salmonids and other threatened/endangered species. We need to know where they are and describe them in as much detail as we possible. Mapping every last meter of every small stream/wetland is the only way to advocate for their protection. It is all about the habitat!
