The Chronicle Herald writes, “Fisheries and Oceans Canada has partnered with the Halifax-based Ecology Action Centre on a new initiative that aims to educate and better prepare Canadians for the impact of climate change.”
“In Atlantic Canada, sea-level rise is impacting our coastal communities more and more every year and all models indicate that the impacts will only intensify,” Samantha Page, Coastal Adaptation Coordinator, Ecology Action Centre said in a press release. “Communities (residents, fishermen, councilors etc.) need sea-level rise information that is specific to their region — not global averages — and they need tools to help them plan for rising seas.”
