The Georgia Strait Communities Atlas has a new web address, so don't forget to update your bookmark! Although we've moved the site, we are still proudly a part of the UVIC Community Mapping Initiative (http://mapping.uvic.ca), and look forward to working with them in the future.
Did you know that you can submit your own videos to the Georgia Strait Communities Atlas? One of our goals for the Communities Atlas project is to encourage you to participate in the creation of a rich and informative Local Knowledge section of the Atlas. Check out our Atlas to learn more about how you can get involved, and read our blog about the newest member of the Atlas team (Meet Megapus).
A Clean Marine BC Resource Map is now available. This Google Earth map will help you find green boating resources around the region (including the locations of marinas participating in our CMBC eco-rating program), sensitive habitat areas, and information about best practices that will allow you to protect the Georgia Strait, while enjoying her amazing waters and shorelines.
