She will talk about how the ongoing growth pressures on Vancouver Island impact the Mount Arrowsmith Biosphere Region (MABR) which extends from the top of Mount Arrowsmith, the highest mountain on southern Vancouver Island, to the bottom of the Salish Sea.

The MABR encompasses many unique ecosystems ranging from high alpine and coastal forests to intertidal and marine habitats. It is also part of the traditional territory of seven First Nations communities.
