Esquimalt Lagoon


For the Research Project, out team is looking at the recent storm damage to the north end of the Esquimalt Lagoon.

Esquimalt Lagoon is a Migratory Bird Sanctuary located in Colwood, just outside Victoria BC. Esquimalt Lagoon made up of a large area of open water. The fresh water in the lagoon comes from 13 streams that drain the Colwood delta. The salt water comes in from the ocean at high tide.

This area is protected by the long, sandy beach that makes up the Coburg Peninsula. A road runs along the centre of the peninsula and there is a bridge at the north end.
