On the ground conservation science is hard work. Important work since it includes monitoring, keeping an eye on nature's dials and meters. In this Narwhal essay--a long read but lavishly illustrated--is a report on  the work of Indigenous nations along the western coast of Canada on monitoring their large environment.. 

The essay features guardians from First Nations talking about the leadership they have taken in their extensive work. It includes "nearly 3,000 square kilometers of the coast (300,000 square hectares or ~741,316 acres of the coast. The approach is spreading across Canada. It includes a useful map, videos with the Guradian Watchmen, and links to other monitoring projects.

Humber College is acknowledged for their consultation.
