We have dedicated this page to the work of Bob Turner from Bowen Island and John Buchanan from Squamish who both love Átl’ḵa7tsem / Howe Sound, and love to explore its waters.
Both John and Bob work independently from Concerned Citizens Bowen and independently from each other, but have been sharing their work with us.
With John’s herring spawn documentation we were able to make the case that Woodfibre LNG should change its cooling system. The Squamish Nation Council agreed and the rest is history. Bob’s videos bring the wonders of Átl’ḵa7tsem / Howe Sound to the attention of many.
Bob has been bringing his adventures in Átl’ḵa7tsem / Howe Sound to a wider public: adding to the awareness that around the corner from Metro Vancouver there exists a place of wonder and magical beauty.
Below is small selection of their videos, you can find many more at:
