Exhibit - Atlantic Canada: An Ocean of Diversity and Natural Beauty by Nick Hawkins
From April 30 to May 16, 2018, the House of Sustainable Development and the David Suzuki Foundation will be hosting Nick Hawkins’s exhibit Atlantic Canada: An Ocean of Diversity and Natural Beauty.
For this photographic series, Nick Hawkins has traveled around the East Coast of Canada to capture the diversity of Atlantic Canada's marine and coastal life. He focused his work on the Bay of Fundy, the Scotian Shelf and the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
Nick Hawkins seeks stories and images that bring attention to the impacts of human activity on wildlife. By capturing unique and rare photos, the biologist wants to educate Canadians about the importance of oceans and inspire them to care for species and ecosystems.
