Welcome to Salish Sea Restoration

From Salish Sea Wiki
This website is a peer-to-peer learning platform to support the stewardship of our lands and waters. Volunteer editors create and revise various Types of Pages using our Style Guide under a shared Social Contract. Each page is cross-linked and flagged with a system of Categories. We offer what we know. Using this platform anyone can share evidence. We use knowledge to be more effective and efficient in supporting the regeneration of ecosystems. Regardless of which side of the 49th parallel you live, we invite you to join in our effort.

Why Join Us?

Sharing and organizing knowledge is essential for protecting and restoring ecosystems. We cultivate this platform so that anyone can rapidly learn about ecosystem stewardship, or teach what they know. This is the only peer-to-peer and place-based platform in academia or government for open knowledge management.

  • Circulate evidence and locally-based knowledge about Places you live and work.
  • Share hard-to-find Products on different Topics and archive Documents that might otherwise be lost.
  • Identify urgent questions and share new investigations about Topics of interest.
  • Map the Efforts of local Workgroups in Places to broaden and connect our networks.
