Card Details

Flight of Fancy © Laurie MacBrideEyeOnEnvironment.com  

Feathers give birds the ability to fly and our envy of flight causes our imaginations to soar. The symbolic potency of feathers has been used by many cultures to show respect, power, wisdom, honour and strength.

Inside Inscription: In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.(Aristotle)

The low angle winter sun shines brillliantly through a crack in the clouds at Owen Bay on Sonora Island. 

Inside Inscription: Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher. (William Wordsworth)



Evening Glow © Laurie MacBrideEyeOnEnvironment.com

Sunset at Tribune Bay on Hornby Island is the backdrop for this timeless scene. Tribune Bay is one of the most popular boating destinations in Georgia Strait.

Inside Inscription:  Be thou the rainbow to the storms of life! The evening beam that smiles the clouds away and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray! (Lord Byron)



Okisollo Morning © Laurie MacBrideEyeOnEnvironment.com

The Strait of Georgia is connected to Johnstone Strait by a network of constricted tidal passages, including Okisollo Channel which lies between Quadra and Sonora Islands. These passages have been collectively called ‘Wild Salmon Narrows’ because salmon travel through them on their journey out to the sea as juveniles, and back again as adults to spawn. 

Inside Inscription: Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. (Confucius)

Card Details 

Surface © Isabelle GrocTidelife.ca  

Harbour seals can dive to 400 metres and stay submerged for almost half an hour, feeding on fish (primarily hake). Especially on sunny days, they can also be found at the surface, hauled out on exposed reefs and ledges in groups ranging from just a few individuals to 500 or more. Hunted until 1970 in BC, the population of this highly intelligent and social species has since rebounded.



Making a Splash © Laurie MacBrideEyeOnEnvironment.com

Dall’s porpoises can weigh over 400 pounds and swim up to 30 knots (55 km/hour) creating a large rooster tail of spray. They often ‘bow ride’ in small groups, zig-zagging directly in front of a moving boat. The species can be found year-round all along the BC coast.



Adams River Sockeye © Ernest Keeley

Five species of wild Pacific salmon hatch from eggs in BC’s freshwater streams and lakes, then travel to the sea where they spend most of their lives. In the end they return to where they were born to spawn another generation and die-nourishing humans and wildlife, and even feeding the forests far into BC’s interior with nutrients from their carcasses.



Peep Show © Laurie MacBrideEyeOnEnvironment.com

Birders refer to small shorebirds like these sandpipers as “peeps” because of their calls. These tiny birds migrate immense distances, wintering as far south as Peru and breeding in Alaska and northern Canada. During their migrations they stop to rest at vital feeding areas in the Strait of Georgia including Roberts Bank, Boundary Bay and Sidney Island.
