Descending to the depths of Howe Sound – Sea of Glass Pt 1

by Danielle Ludeman

Last month, CPAWS-BC (Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society) launched their “Journey to the Sea of Glass” submarine expedition that I was fortunate enough to be a part of.  For two beautiful sunny days in October, CPAWS, with Nuytco Research, sent eleven people down in the submarine Aquarius to view the glass sponge reef in Howe Sound. The goal was to raise awareness about the sponge reefs: a unique ecosystem found only in this part of the world, and being threatened by the fishing industry.  The successful event was featured in Global TV, Vancouver Sun, National Geographic News, and CBC to name a few.  In addition, CPAWS has put together a series of videos that I will feature here over the course of the week.
