Here is a short video of Cowichan Watershed Board member and Medical Health Officer, Dr. Shannon Waters, talking about the importance of our river, and the salmon it supports, to public health here in the Cowichan Valley. This is part 4 in a series of "ClimateReady" Discussion Videos by the Province of BC
"The Province is doing critical work through CleanBC to reduce our emissions and take action on climate change. But greenhouse gas emissions already in the atmosphere will continue to cause changes over the coming decades. Preparing for climate change is about understanding these changes and developing appropriate measures to respond and be prepared. It’s what we call being “climate-ready”. Climate change affects our homes, jobs, health, and even our mental wellbeing. We will need to come together and support one another as we experience more and more impacts of climate change."
