Message from the Director, Dr. Sean Rogers
The Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre has been taking steps to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic in our community. We have been closely following the advice of the BC Health Authority to protect the health and safety of our staff and community. Of course, this has meant a cancellation of educational visits to the BMSC (currently until the end of August). We are also tackling this unprecedented situation in Bamfield by emphasizing the importance for everyone to follow public health guidelines, work remotely (yes, even in Bamfield!) and ensuring these practices are followed in our daily operations. We continue to offer limited, but critical research and operational services. I would like to thank our team and their incredible support in this endeavour. We remain operational, but cannot accommodate any visitors to the BMSC at this time.
As our students shift to remote learning at our universities and schools, our educational unit is offering alternative methods of instruction where students can embark on life-changing exploration and discovery in Barkley Sound from home, with live and online educational content using real-time interactions with educators.
