On May 2 the preview of This Living Salish Sea was included in the Saslish Sea Film Festival, a collection of short films related to the Salish Sea Ecosystem. The film festival is part of the 2014 Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference April 30 – May 2, 2014, held in Seattle, Washington. The conference is a yearly gathering sponsored by Western Washington University, Fraser Basin Council, and Puget Sound Partnership. More about the conference and film festival.
“SSEC assembles scientists, First Nations and tribal government representatives, resource managers, community/business leaders, policy makers, educators and students to present the latest scientific research on the state of the ecosystem, and to guide future actions for protecting and restoring the Salish Sea Ecosystem. To accomplish its purpose, the conference will feature plenary sessions with keynote speakers, concurrent sessions featuring oral presentations, poster presentations, workshops, frequent opportunities for informal networking, and related off-program events. The Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference is the largest most comprehensive event of its kind in the region.”
