EcoPortfolios Quarterly Spring 2017 Edition:

June 8th is World Oceans Day, a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future. This year it has a theme of Our Oceans, Our Future, with a conservation action focus of “encouraging solutions to plastic pollution and preventing marine litter for a healthier ocean and a better future”.
 
On the Pacific Coast of Canada, we tend to be focused on the risk posed to our coastline from an oil tanker spill or pipeline failure.
