SOG MRG was designed to align with and build upon two other Marine Reference Guide projects happening on British Columbia's Southern Coast:
The Átl’ka7tsem/Howe Sound Marine Stewardship Initiative interactive map contains hundreds of layers and documents that describe Átl’ka7tsem/Howe Sound aquatic ecology, biophysical environment, administrative boundaries, and human uses.Learn more
West Coast Aquatic's Marine Ecosystem Reference Guide includes over 200 layers of scientific, traditional and local knowledge in an interactive format focused on West Coast Vancouver Island. Click below to access their online interactive map.Learn more
