Our docks, facilities, and access trails on Calvert Island are closed to visitors in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This closure extends to the shorelines of Pruth Bay, West Beach, and North Beach.

Networks - Hakai Institute


One of the Hakai Institute’s strengths is our ability to catalyze collaboration among diverse partners with a shared mission. We fill the seams; we integrate the disciplines. We’re proud to play an integral role in local, regional, and international scientific networks.

Hakai’s Calvert Island Ecological Observatory is the first Canadian node within Smithsonian’s Marine Global Earth Observatory—a global network of partners focused on understanding how coastal marine ecosystems work and how to keep them working.

We are proud partners within the Pacific region of CIOOS, the Canadian Integrated Ocean Observing System. CIOOS will integrate Canadian oceanographic data from multiple sources to make them accessible to end-users, from researchers, to the general public, to policy makers.

GOA-ON is a collaborative international approach to document the status and progress of ocean acidification in open-ocean, coastal, and estuarine environments, to understand the drivers and impacts of ocean acidification on marine ecosystems, and to provide spatially and temporally resolved biogeochemical data necessary to optimize modeling for ocean acidification.

The Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems (NANOOS) is the Regional Association of the national Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) in the Pacific Northwest.

As the “eye on Alaska’s coasts and oceans,” AOOS represents a network of critical ocean and coastal observations, data and information products that aid our understanding of the status of Alaska’s marine ecosystem and allow stakeholders to make better decisions about their use of the marine environment.

The Critical Zone Exploration Network (CZEN) is a community of people and a network of field sites investigating processes within the Critical Zone—the Earth’s outer layer from vegetation canopy to the soil and groundwater that sustains human life.
