Event Update: Panel announced for upcoming 'Beyond The Open Net-Pen' Presentation

Presentations at the event will include the following three Guest speakers from B.C.:

• Karen Wristen is the Executive Director of BC’s Living Oceans Society, with a background in environmental law. Living Oceans specializes in research and public policy to help coastal communities protect their ocean resources. Karen has been advocating on behalf of wild salmon habitat and promoting sustainable aquaculture for more than a decade.

Bob Chamberlin is the former Chief Councillor of the Kwikwasutinuxw Haxwa’mis First Nation, serving seven two-year terms, and former VP of the Union of BC Indian Chiefs, which represents over 100 BC First Nations. Bob, a passionate champion of wild salmon, founded the First Nations Wild Salmon Alliance, an organization of Indigenous leaders united to protect and conserve wild salmon.

Bob Chamberlain, Chief Councillor of the Kwikwasutinuxw Haxwa’mis First Nation:

• Bonny Glambeck, a lifelong activist and naturalist based in Tofino, BC, shares with her husband, Dan, a particular love for the Clayoquot Sound. Together, they helped build the temperate rain forest movement, culminating in the 1993 Clayoquot protests, the largest act of civil disobedience in Canadian history. Their passion for salmon, the environment, and the Clayoquot Sound have led them to an intense examination of the extensive open net-pen operations and their impact on marine ecosystems.

Bonny Glambeck of Clayoquot Action:

We are incredibly excited about this first of its kind, precedent setting bi-coastal event and anticipate a big turnout at the Astor Theatre in Liverpool. Please spread the word and share the invite!
