For the past two years researchers at the Maritime Museum of British Columbia have been searching historical records and interviewing descendants about the individuals who lost their lives on board the coastal liner SS Princess Sophia. This book pays tribute to these many men, women and children who died so suddenly as a result of the tragic sinking. The loss of so many passengers and crew left behind a cascading array of shattered lives, missed opportunities and broken dreams.
The book documents the story about the ship; biographies of the people; the impact on Yukon River sternwheelers; the lone survivor; and prophetic last poems by one of the ship's passengers.

THIS MONTH'S SPEAKER: SARAH PATTON, APRIL 25
From fins to flukes: Whales, dolphins, and porpoises in BC
Do you know how to tell a porpoise from a dolphin? Or what humpback whales eat?
Join Sarah Patton on April 25th, 2019 to explore the wonderful world of cetaceans (whales, dolphins, and porpoises) and sea turtles. Find out how to identify British Columbia’s common whale species, learn about the threats they face, and discover how you can get involved in their conservation through the B.C. Cetacean Sightings Network.
A joint project of Ocean Wise and Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the B.C. Cetacean Sightings Network is a citizen science program which collects sightings of cetaceans and sea turtles from mariners and coastal residents for conservation-based research. 12 of the 23 species of cetacean and 4 species of sea turtle that call B.C. home are listed as ‘At Risk’ by the Species at Risk Act, which is why it is so important to gather valuable information about their abundance, distribution, and critical habitat.
