The Fraser Estuary is a part of an intricate network of bird stopovers that make up the Pacific Flyway. In this webinar we will discuss how the Fraser Estuary is linked to estuaries, and other ecosystems along the entire Pacific coast of North and South America.

Connected Estuary
As a nursery and feeding ground, the Fraser River Estuary connects a food web linking people, fish, birds and marine mammals across two hemispheres. Connected Estuary is a 6 episode webinar series that explores what science can tell us about the history, vulnerability and connectivity of the Fraser Estuary.
