Organization: Metro Vancouver Regional Parks
Location: Belcarra/Coquitlam, Metro Vancouver BC
Learn new skills and gain hands-on experience in data collection, public education and marine stewardship. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old and able to commit a minimum of 30 hours (during weekends) throughout the summer.
The Belcarra Beachkeepers are a group of 20 to 25 volunteers recruited every summer to educate park users about the creatures living on the beach while promoting stewardship of the marine ecosystem. The volunteers are on hand from Canada Day through the Labour Day weekend, and use interactive displays and hands-on activities to encourage low-impact exploration of the intertidal zone at Belcarra Regional Park.
A partnership between Metro Vancouver and Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the Belcarra Beachkeepers provide information to recreational crab fishers and inform the public of federal regulations regarding marine animals at the beach. They have also collected over 15 years of important scientific baseline data on Dungeness and Red Rock crab populations at the Belcarra Regional Park wharf, the only recreational crab study of its kind in BC.
