The path to knowledge is bliss, ignorance is motivation to be a trailblazer. 
A key motivation for my participation in CAC was to enter on this path and gain wisdom about marine mammals upon which the environment has a great impact.  I learned this and much more, including a key concept that can serve me in all walks of life. 

Through examining the synergistic causes of habitat destruction
and the cause and effect relationships that lead to Orca endangerment, one can better understand the ocean ecosystem. 
Or by simply standing at the root of a logged tree with a new growing tree stemming from its trunk,
I can see how logging has negative effects up on old growth forests, yet the habitat has adaptation for "spring back." 
This closer look can occur not only in the beautiful backdrop of breathtaking BC,
but also in classrooms, marine mammal theme parks, and other educational programs.
Through education, the conservation message can be spread, accompanying efforts to decrease pollution,
encourage recycling, and lessen consumption in general as to conserve the local
environment as well as the interconnected waters of the Pacific Ocean.
