Community Marine Coastline.... Wolf Island to Fort Rodd Hill.
1977 --- 577.51 Bau (Marine Building Library, LB Pearson
The marine shoreline of the Western Community within the Capital Regional District of British Columbia stretches southwesterly from Victoria and Esquimalt Harbor to Beecher Bay along the Strait of Juan De Fuca. The shore-study area with which this report is concerned extends from Creyke Pt. near Wolf Island to the northern boundary of Fort Rodd Hill Park. While these boundaries are only eleven miles apart, the intervening high-tide shoreline actually total forty-eight miles including all coves, lagoons, and islands within that reach. (Caliper "walked" at 100ft. intervals).
This preliminary study has concerned itself primarily with an inventory and evaluation of the beach resources in view of the fact that these represent not only the more changeable and least stable component of the coast, but are also of high recreational and esthetic resource value. Especially is this true of the two major drift - sector beach areas, where the integrated geohydraulic system of erosion-transport-accretion has created barrier spits with their fringe habitat and benthic aquatic bio-process environments.

Coastal Ecological Sustainability http://metchosinmarine.ca/sustainability/Introduction.htm
The key message of this resource is on global marine issues, and the integral role of all humans in maintaining environmentally sustainable marine ecosystems. Examples from the British Columbia marine environment illustrate the principles and these also apply on a global basis. The over-arching concept of this section is marine environmental sustainability. We have an opportunity to provide some substance to what environmental sustainability in the ocean is really about, and to encourage others to a commitment to participate in the process. People of all ages can use the tools to actively participate in making our marine environment sustainable.
