The Raincoast Education Society is exited to have been part of the ongoing West Coast NEST project, Sustainable Development in the Clayoquot Biosphere Region. A project using the ArcGis platform to develop StoryMaps that showcase all the amazing sustainability work being done in our region while inspiring further efforts.
The Raincoast Education Society have created two StoryMaps, one on Tracking Shorebird research and the most recent Klahowya!, where we begin to explore Tla-o-qui-aht place names with Gisele, an Indigenous guardian from ƛaʔuukʷiʔatḥ / Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation.
To view the entire collection of ArcGIS StoryMaps that explore local research and monitoring efforts in the Clayoquot & Barkly Sounds, check out the Science and Conservation in the Clayoquot Biosphere Region.

The is project is created in partnership with the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust, Royal Road University with support from NSERC.
