K-12: Collaborative Science & Marine Stewardship: Inquiring into BC's Great Bear Sea

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Great Bear Sea is a BC gem. It is one of the richest marine ecosystems in the world, and an important marine resource both locally and internationally. How do we ensure that this unique area is sustainably managed for future generations, particularly for the communities that have called this area home for thousands of years? The Great Bear Sea: Reflecting on the Past Planning for the Future, showcases how Coastal BC communities, 18 First Nations and the provincial government are collaborating to plan for the future of the Great Bear Sea. Using engaging film segments, real-life research data, and local First Nations knowledge and place-based stories, the Great Bear Sea curriculum explores themes such as traditional and local knowledge, collaborative science, marine planning, biodiversity, sustainable resource management and marine stewardship. This workshop will introduce you to the newly developed, curriculum-connected resources (Grades 4 – 7 and Secondary Environmental Science) through hands-on activities, film segments and more. All participants will be provided with free resources, including film and print materials. These resources specifically address the new BC curriculum, including a specific focus on First Peoples’ perspectives and worldview.
