Lesson 1: Introduction to the Great Bear Sea

This lesson introduces students to the region known as the Great Bear Sea – an ecologically biodiverse and important marine area for British Columbia. Students will be introduced to the four sub-regions of the Great Bear Sea (Central Coast, Haida Gwaii, North Coast, and North Vancouver Island) and identify the communities and species that call this diverse ecosystem home. They will begin to consider the ecological, social, cultural and economic significance of future development in the area, as well as sustainable planning for generations to come.
