Celebrating BC's glass sponge reefs

Send a thank you letter to the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans Canada for protecting BC’s ancient, unique and important glass sponge reefs.

In 2015 thousands of Canadians, and 40 leading international scientists, wrote to the government to tell them that the glass sponge reefs needed stronger protection than what was being proposed.

The government listened to you.

On Thursday 16th February, the Minister announced the new Hecate Strait and Queen Charlotte Sound glass sponge reef MPA, which includes extra protection measures to address the threats to the reefs we raised.

Please send a short thank you note to Fisheries and Oceans Canada to thank them for taking this important step and protecting Canada’s oceans.

Your message will be sent to: Minister Dominic LeBlanc

Copies will also be sent to:
Deputy Minister Catherine Blewett, Assistant Depty Minister Kevin Stringer, Regional Director General Rebecca Reid
