Hakai Research Institute Peterson, Eric


Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. In this talk, Hakai Beach Institute co-founder Eric Peterson discusses the work of the institute, which is located on the only deeded land of an uninhabited island, Calvert. Calvert Island is 161 square kilometers and is in turn in the middle of an uninhabited 1,200-square-kilometer marine-conservation area. In collaboration with B.C. Parks, this huge and incredibly diverse natural laboratory is at the centre of the Hakai Beach Institute’s work, which specializes in long term ecological research with a mission to understand the coastal ecology of BC, uncover its past, monitor its present and protect its future. Dr. Peterson discusses the Hakai’s latest research in marine and terrestrial ecology.
