IMERSS
INSTITUTE FOR MULTIDISCIPLINARY ECOLOGICAL RESEARCH IN THE SALISH SEA
Furthering our vision for the Salish Sea: a resilient and interconnected bioregion in a changing world

OUR STORY

CO-CREATING COMMUNITY AND CONNECTION TO PLACE

IMERSS is a multidisciplinary, crosscultural, and transboundary community of practice dedicated to long-term ecological research in the Salish Sea bioregion. We are driven by a common desire to empower communities in the effort to monitor biodiversity in this sensitive and dynamic coastal environment.

We strive to foster open access to sciencescholarshiptechnology and art, encouraging individuals to play active roles attending to changes in the ecosystems that surround us.  In this way, we hope to counteract the impacts of cultural amnesia and shifting baselines in this era of rapid ecological and social transformation.

IMERSS is a federally incorporated Canadian non-profit (1203734-3).
