Icefields to Ocean - Hakai Institute

Icefields to Ocean

Water typically travels from high up in the mountains down through the streams and rivers into the inlets and fjords at the coast. But climate change is affecting how and when water moves through the landscape, affecting creatures from bears all the way down to microscopic plankton in the ocean.

Come with us as we try to better understand the changing British Columbia coast by tracking its water from icefields to ocean.
