Description

Sanctuary. Refuge. Nursery. Protected from the strong currents of Howe Sound and fed by the nutrient rich waters of Terminal Creek, Mannion Bay/Kwil’akm is the region’s southernmost estuary. Located on the east side of Bowen Island it welcomes visitors as they make their way into Snug Cove via ferry from Horseshoe Bay. Due to it’s prominent yet sheltered location the bay has seen a myriad of human activity and land use since settlers arrived to the island in the 1800’s. Creation of the causeway has transformed what was once a typical estuary environment into separate lagoon and tidal sandflats divided by a spillway. Despite this drastic alteration, and the continuing impact from human recreation and industry, ecology of the bay perseveres. One of the most important species in Kwil’akm is eelgrass. Eelgrass is a remarkable marine plant; it provides food and shelter for a myriad of aquatic organisms, absorbs atmospheric carbon, and the deep roots act as an anchor to stabilize shoreline sediments. It goes without saying that estuaries are one of the most important ecosystems to the life and health of Atl’ka7tsem/Howe Sound.
