The long-term sea otter research by Jane Watson and others in the Checleset Bay Ecological Reserve, off the west coast of Vancouver Island, was funded early on and for more than a decade by the Lichen Foundation and the Luna Trust through the Friends of Ecological Reserves.
It was not a lot of money, but Jane managed to cobble together enough to keep diving all summer studying and monitoring the sea otters.
The article points out the importance of funding long-term studies so that we can understand the environmental impacts of climate change.
Readers who are interested in the environment are urged to contribute to the Friends of Ecological Reserves so that these long-term studies can continue. See ecoreserves.bc.ca.
