The below video is part of David Suzuki Foundation's Natural Capital Policy Live project highlighting projects in the Lower Mainland where communities are embracing naturalized areas and their associated ecosystem services.

Local advocates Edith Tobe and Kim Armour talk about how the community has come together to transform the Squamish River Estuary from a lifeless moonscape into a thriving, re-naturalized ecosystem that protects the Town of Squamish from flooding and prevents run-off pollution from entering the ocean.  Negative effects of invasive plants are also mentioned!
