The Howe Sound is North America’s southernmost fjord winding 42km inland from the Burrard Inlet near Vancouver to the glacial-fed Squamish River. The result of glaciers, earthquakes, volcanoes and mountain-building from a past geological era, the Howe Sound is of high ecological significance. The coastal zone of BC is home to 78% of all mammal species, 64% of breeding birds and 67% of freshwater fish. The Howe Sound watershed is estimated to provide $800 million to $4.7 billion in ecosystem services annually.
