Marine conservation and public engagement, until recently, have been conducted as separate entities. This report aims to highlight nuanced global best practices for re-incorporating community stewardship as a critical strategy in urban marine conservation. Spotlighting False Creek, Vancouver, this report also piloted seven marine-focused engagement strategies. The results will contribute to the False Creek Friends Society's long-term goal of establishing an urban marine park within False Creek.
