Abstract

The time has come to restore wildlife populations throughout the Salish Sea to more than 50% of historic levels as soon as possible. In order to accomplish this, the people and governments of Coast Salish First Nations, British Columbia and Washington State must come together in unprecedented unified action to protect and restore Salish Sea Watershed habitat, biodiversity and wildlife populations...in a comprehensive and holistic way, within months and years, not decades. Building upon 40 years of legislative and legal framework arising from the U.S. Marine Sanctuary Act of 1972, and learning from the myriad successes and shortcomings of 14 U.S. National Marine Sanctuaries and numerous UNESCO Biosphere Reserves, the Salish Sea Foundation proposes: SALISH SEA MARINE SANCTUARY & COASTAL TRAIL North America's First International Marine Sanctuary (also the first to be watershed-delineated, people-up and indigenous-led) (also the first to have an awesome hiking and biking pathway circumnavigating the Sanctuary) For more information, please see www.SalishSea.Org and 'Salish Sea Marine Sanctuary' on Facebook.
