SLGO is the first integrated ocean observing system in Canada.
Communities are also increasingly interested in environmental issues and get involved in data collection activities. For example, the Comités ZIP in Quebec are regional organizations bringing together the main users of the St. Lawrence while fostering a coherent approach to solving local and regional issues affecting ecosystems.2
Similarly, the general public can be involved. Citizens are progressively welcome to contribute their own observations through initiatives such as the Capelin Observation Network (CON).3and the Marine Mammal Observation Network (MMON) 4SLGO has developed a collaborative Web platform to support such programs, allowing individuals to enter their own data online.5
