Marine ecosystems map viewer Baja California to Bering Sea Map
From the Gulf of California, with its deep canyons, nutrient-rich upwellings and high levels of endemism, to the 20,000 kilometers of bays, inlets and inland drainage systems of the Pacific Northwest and the high productivity of the Bering Sea, the west coast of North America is home to unique and important shared marine environments.
It is also home to a great number of shared marine species-such as Pacific gray and blue whales, leatherback sea turtles, bluefin tuna, black brant geese and Heermann's gulls-that migrate thousands of kilometers, moving across national borders without hesitation.
Hence, be it through shared species or ecosystems, the marine environments of Canada, Mexico and the United States are intimately linked.
Accordingly, action or inaction on one side of a border will have consequences for the shared living organisms occupying ecosystems with no definite boundaries.
