Saturna Island Marine Research and Education Society

SIMRES is a volunteer, non-profit organization bringing marine research and educational programs about the Salish Sea to Saturna Island.  We collaborate with students and experts in the field to support science and stewardship and to promote a deeper understanding of our fragile marine ecosystems.  All funding currently comes through local partner organizations, community donations and our events.


Our Mission:  To preserve and enhance the marine ecosystems of the Salish Sea.


Our Goals: 

1.  To provide marine education programs to raise awareness about the Salish Sea, and to engage the public.
