Since the Ocean Watch report on the health of Howe Sound was published in early 2017, the Ocean Watch Task Force has been focused on Local Government action items to help improve the health of the Sound. Well supported by all local governments, the development of a Marine Reference Guide as a planning tool is now underway and progress can be tracked on the Howe Sound Guide website.

At the recent Howe Sound Community Forum in April, Co-chair of the task force, Kate-Louise Stamford provided a report and presented the Strategic Action Plan. A summary of the plan can be made available on request to Ocean Watch manager Aroha.Miller@ocean.org .

An update and progress report on the health of Howe Sound is in the planning stages by Coastal Ocean Research Institute a division of OceanWise. A knowledge holder’s workshop is planned for June 7th and the update should be published in early 2020. The report will be updated to include marine issues affected by climate change.
