A Meeting with Mr. Stinky

Posted 6/22/2010 by


Recently I met with representatives from the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society.  They brought "Mr. Stinky," which is a specimen of a 9,000 year-old glass sponge reefs with them to Ottawa from British Columbia. “Mr Stinky” is from the spectacular reefs off the coast of British Columbia, some living 250 metres deep, that cover up to 1,000 square kilometres as far north as Hecate Strait and as far south as B.C.'s Sunshine Coast and the Strait of Georgia, including off Galiano Island.

These representatives were in Ottawa to celebrate Oceans Day and to help bring awareness to this important reef to Parliamentarians.

Check out this brochure to learn more about this fascinating reef.
