Finding the Balance: First Nations on southern Vancouver Island are working to protect their territorial waters, and these young divers are leading the way . . . Finding the Balance.
Finding the Balance is about four Southern Vancouver Island nations — T’Sou-ke, Songhees, Esquimalt and Sc’ianew — coming together to protect and monitor territorial waters. Three divers are tasked with the job of surveying and documenting what lies under the water. It is a story about being Indigenous, about protecting the environment and understanding what’s not only above ground, but also what is going on below the sea and in the sea.
