Protection for the Supernatural Being Looking Outward

The Haida Indian nation and the Canadian government have signed an agreement to set up BC’s Quenn Charlotte Islands as a marine protected area (MPA).  The MPA will allow for protection of Bowie Seamount or in the Haida tongue as Sgaan Kinghlas (Supernatural Being Looking Outward), by far a better name.  The 55km by 24km seamount rises up from the 3,000 meter deep seafloor to come within 25 meteres of the surface. The top of the seamount is quite productive and a feeding ground for Steller Sea Lions
