Future Ecologies podcast dives into the Terminal 2 expansion project

On the soundscape of the Salish Sea, Future Ecologies asks: can we find ways to hear each other through all the noise?

The largest container port in Canada is poised to get even larger. Listen to these interviews and learn about the context of the threat that building and operating Terminal 2 poses to the Fraser Estuary and the people and species that rely on it. 

You have until March 15th to submit a comment on the Roberts Bank Terminal 2 expansion. To find out why this project should not be approved, listen to these interviews with Janie Wray, Misty MacDuffee, Steven Slə́qsit Stark, Marko Dekovic, and Stephanie Kwetásel’wet Wood, by Future Ecologies.

“At the heart of the Salish Sea lies the Fraser River Estuary: home to over half of the population of the Province of British Columbia, a nursery for underwater wildlife, and one world-famous pod of orcas. But as the human population of the region has grown, wildlife populations — including salmon, orcas, and over 100 species at risk — have been plummeting.”

Raincoast’s in-house scientists, collaborating graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professors make us unique among conservation groups. We work with First Nations, academic institutions, government, and other NGOs to build support and inform decisions that protect aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the wildlife that depend on them. We conduct ethically applied, process-oriented, and hypothesis-driven research that has immediate and relevant utility for conservation deliberations and the collective body of scientific knowledge.

We investigate to understand coastal species and processes. We inform by bringing science to decision-makers and communities. We inspire action to protect wildlife and wildlife habitats.
