The original purpose of the Salish Sea Map was intended as an educational effort, both of the name (and concept) of the “Salish Sea” itself, but beyond that, towards greater awareness and protection of the marine waters and surrounding lands that makeup the Salish Sea ecosystem.
Over the years I’ve given hundreds of people and projects permission to use the map (for non-commercial purposes). Below is a very incomplete list of some of the places that have used it. Beyond just having my permission to use the map, I am honored that it has connected with so many people doing such good work.
In no particular order… a small sampling of places the map of the Salish Sea has been seen…

And a very long list of students, teachers, researchers, poets, authors who have used the map in their work…
