Protect Saanich Inlet

On Wednesday, February 26th, 2014 in Get Involved

Protect Saanich InletA study conducted in 1996 by the British Columbia Ministry of the Environment concluded that Saanich Inlet “is an important and sensitive ecosystem-physically, ecologically and culturally… world renowned for its beauty…is highly valued by humans and supports important cultural and recreational uses”. It concluded that Saanich Inlet’s “low flushing rate and sensitive coastal ecology make it susceptible to human influence”, that due to these unique conditions, Saanich Inlet has a very limited capacity to assimilate contaminants, and that this capacity had already been exceeded.

It is critical to increase Saanich Inlet’s level of environmental protection to ensure that this unique and cherished waterway can continue to be enjoyed by local communities and visiting recreational users alike.
