Great news! Through the Community Energy Diesel Reduction (CEDR) program, 12 First Nations will receive $7.1 million for renewable energy projects, community energy planning, and energy efficiency improvements.
For communities that need to use diesel to generate electricity, these projects will help lower costs, reduce emissions, and secure the energy they need for generations to come. First Nations Invest in Community Energy Plans, Renewable Energy Projects (Coast Funds)

“It’s breaking out of this box of what sustenance and sustainability, as far as being able to support yourself as a nation off your territory, looks like." - Naxginkw/Tara Marsden of Gitanyow Huwilp shares Gitanyow's land-use plan with The Narwhal.
Gitanyow celebrated the 10th anniversary of the plan in late September. The land-use plan is lauded as "an example of Indigenous and settler governments working together in a way that reflects the principles of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples."

Hakai Institute - Shared The Nature Conservancy in California's post VIDEO - TNC Ocean Scientist Vienna Saccomanno is on a mission to map kelp strongholds on California's North Coast
We can't save kelp if we don't know where it is, and Vienna's team is using drones to find it. Meet nature's new eye in the sky. Thank you to our partners at Hakai Institute for their partnership on this episode.
323 years ago, at 9 pm on January 26, 1700, a magnitude 9 earthquake rocked the Pacific Northwest coast. The terrifying event was preserved for centuries in the oral histories of Indigenous communities throughout the region. The Great Quake and the Great Drowning (Hakai Magazine)
Ocean Networks Canada
In November, ONC's integrated deep-sea and land sensor networks detected the #Tofino 4.8 magnitude #earthquake 43 seconds before ground shaking hit Victoria and Vancouver.
This was made possible by ONC’s integrated deep-sea and land sensor network, located close to the Cascadia Subduction Zone off the west coast of Vancouver Island.
We are working with partners to launch an earthquake notification system, so operators of critical infrastructure in #BC can activate safety and emergency response measures and notify those in harm’s way.
