While a large population migrates from their Northwest Territories breeding grounds to the Salish Sea, many bypass our area and spend the winter in California and Mexico.

The intertidal zone is also a good place to find plant life in the sea, where mangroves or cordgrass or beach grass might grow. Advanced degrees (at the Masters or PhD level) are usually required for positions in the field, particularly in education or research. Today, most scientists recognise at least 5 kingdoms, some argue that there are at least 10 and others debate the value of a further category, called a domain, that would sit above kingdom.

Manatees have been seen mating in the shallow river mouths. Marine biology is the field of knowledge relating to marine organisms.
