Description This report examines selective aspects of the state of the environment in the binational transboundary region consisting of the Puget Sound region in the United States and the Georgia Basin in Canada, including the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The report discusses six indicators that describe some of the stressors and human responses that account for the present state of this shared ecosystem. It represents an initial attempt to provide a sense of the current state and trends in this ecosystem in an integrated way across the Canada-United States boundary. The objective is to provide citizens, governments and other decision makers with information that can help them make better decisions for the future of this richly endowed yet fragile region that Canadians and Americans share.
