Every 10 years, nominations can be submitted for designation of a location as a World Heritage site. Recently, a transnational effort, led by Canada and the USA, aimed to establish the Salish Sea as a designated heritage site. The marine ecosystem stretches from Puget Sound in Washington State to its headwaters in the mountains of British Columbia. It is a big project.

Most successguf heritage designations for environmental and cultural sites begin with the initiatives of engaged individuals and small groups. A video was produced showing the myriad benefits gained from the interconnected land and sea ecosystem of the Salish Sea region. Its designation as a recognized international heritage site remains undecided.
