DR. NATALIE BAN & UVIC STUDENTS

Dr. Natalie Ban and her 12 students from the U.Vic School of Environmental Studies will arrive on the Saturna dock on the 70ΚΌ schooner, Passing Cloud on Nov. 9th. They will meet the new SEEC students and teacher, Dorianna Chessa, and spend the afternoon exploring environmental studies. The students will be presenting their independent projects to the community and we invite you to attend to give them encouragement as they learn about the sea around us.

We will also be announcing an exciting new SIMRES/SEEC community stewardship collaboration to carry out a multi- year forage fish spawning habitat study on Saturna. This project will be led by Ramona de Graaf, SeaWatch Society. Katie Jones will be acting as the SIMRES coordinator for this project and will be working closely with Dorianna, the students and a number of Saturna volunteers.
