On December 6th, several Bowen Islanders took a water taxi to Gambier Island to join with other groups from around Howe Sound for a Conservationists Network Meeting. Our attendees included Sue Ellen Fast, Will Husby, and Adam Taylor, with Owen Plowman and Bob Turner representing the Bowen Island Conservancy. The Network Meeting was a follow-up from our first Network Meeting in October 2017; these meetings are set up so that we can share ideas, news about projects, and get to know like-minded folks from other organizations in the area.
The Gambier Island Conservancy hosted us, and we covered a wide range of topics. Of course, one of the major items on the agenda was progress on the Howe Sound Biosphere Region Initiative, and we heard very welcome news about that! The completed 328 page nomination document for Atl’ka7tsem/Howe Sound to be designated by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve is now with the Canadian Commission for UNESCO for their review and endorsement.
