    GABRIOLA MAPPING PROJECTS

    EELGRASS MAPPING Gabriola Island

    The following maps were created by the Galiano Conservancy in 2013 and show extent of eelgrass beds around Gabriola Island. These maps are being updated by GISKA and signs will be erected at many locations to educate and provide guidance on the importance of anchoring and mooring outside of these important habitats.
