The volunteers of Saanich Inlet are interested in the long-term documentation of this aquatic area since it is frequented on a regular basis for training, exploration and recreational purposes by local divers. Our main project efforts are to document and monitor the glass sponges of the Saanich Inlet. We currently monitor 3 sponges at the McKenzie Bight site and a shipwreck and reef ball at the Henderson Point site. Photogrammetry has been employed on all stations.
Collaborations: Our activities have now expanded into community outreach projects. We collaborate with the local governing body Capital Regional District for a lake clean up (Durance Lake) and we actively remove commercial abandoned crab traps from the Saanich Inlet in the same respect.
