Cleland Island Ecological Reserve (CIER)  
Emergency Response

Total landmass of the CIER is 7.7 hectares. Synthetic contaminant accumulation has sustained coverage over 90% of terrain, including critical habitat for wildlife utilizing the CIER during spring/summer months. Obvious concern for wildlife has arisen as a result of this contamination and therefore an immediate response is required to rehabilitate the effected areas and return them to their natural state.                                                                       Completed April 2018 

Rafael Point, Flores Island  
 

Located in the heart of the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, Rafael Point is a significant foraging, breeding and nesting area for a variety of wildlife.  Orca, Gray and Humpback whales utilize waters surrounding Rafael Point as prime feeding grounds.  Coastal wolves, migratory seabirds and pinnipeds utilize the area for foraging, breeding, and nesting/rookeries.  Ocean plastics and forms of synthetic pollution has inundated the area and compromises the integrity of critical wildlife habitat. Immediate rehabilitation is required to mitigate wildlife impact.                               Completed June 2018
