Ecology Action Centre
Since 1971, the Ecology Action Centre has been making change at the regional, national and even international levels in areas as diverse as marine conservation, local food and renewable energy. We work closely with communities and make strong use of science. We were alarmed to learn that Atlantic Canada, specifically, Prince Edward Island, could be the birthplace of the first genetically modified food animal in the world to go to market. Through interbreeding, GM salmon could genetically contaminate the magnificent but endangered Atlantic salmon, thus putting wild populations at risk.
