To protect the Biosphere's overall marine habitat, meaningful knowledge and
understanding of how deep marine eco-systems relate to tidal and sub-tidal habitats,
In May of 2004, the resorts began work with Josie Osborne,
Regional Biologist for the Nuu-Chah-Nulth Tribal Council.
Using an underwater
ROV (remote operated vehicle) equipped with powerful lights and cameras, a team
of biologists and resort guests started cataloguing marine organisms by depth.
