Canada is the second largest country in the world; the land area of our country is almost 10 million Km2. What is often forgotten is that our country also includes more than seven million Km2 of ocean and more than 200,000 Km of coastline!
We utilize the ocean for many purposes and we enjoy a wealth of benefits from it. Unfortunately, the way we use the ocean can often be harmful to wildlife and wild habitats. The use of the ocean, its resources and its aquatic inhabitants and its living and non-living resources, is unavoidable. What is avoidable is the careless and unsustainable use of the ocean and this is what we work toward.
