Salish Sea Marineapedia

Discover. Share. Inspire.

My Salish Sea Marineapedia is a citizen science project launched by the Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea. Students and classes are encouraged to collect information, photos and videos about the fascinating species that live in our local waters. Discover the biodiversity of your ocean, share what you learn and inspire others to make a difference!

Visit to register your class as Citizen Scientists. Work as a group or individually!
