The Salish Sea is three bodies of water straddling the border of Canada and the USA - the Strait of Georgia, Juan de Fuca Strait and Puget Sound. The Salish Sea Expedition on board SV Ark Angel in 2013 included Hornby Island, Mitlenatch Island, Savary Island, Pender Harbour, and Thormanby Island in Canada. We traveled on MV Springtime from Bellingham to Yellow Island, San Juan Island, Port Townsend, and Orcas Island in the USA. Extra scenes were added later from the Fraser River delta, Burnaby and Vancouver Island.


Featured in the film is artist James Harry from Squamish First Nation, designer Michael McNamara from Blue Sky Designs on Hornby Island, BC, naturalist Phil Green from the Nature Conservancy of Washington, and oyster farmer Greg Wood from Hollie Wood Oysters on Denman Island, BC.

We also interviewed many dedicated people along our journey whose stories will be told in mini episodes we call B-sides.
