About This Report

Author: Aroha Miller, Manager Ocean Watch, Ocean Wise Research Institute

In 2017, the first Ocean Watch Howe Sound report was released. It provided an overview of the health of the coastal marine environment throughout the Sound, grouped under seven themes. Today, as we rapidly move towards 2021 and the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, we are pleased to release the Ocean Watch Átl’ḵa7tsem/Txwnéwu7ts/Howe Sound Edition 2020. This update speaks to a number of key UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), including, most prominently, SDG 14, life below water, but also SDG 11, sustainable cities and communities, SDG 13, climate action, and perhaps most importantly, SDG 17, partnerships to achieve the goal. Here we have built upon the solid framework used in the first edition, and have made adjustments, additions and revisions. The 2020 edition can be read in isolation; however, to avoid repetition, context and background from the 2017 report have not been repeated.
