• A recent study has found that Cowichan-Koksilah Estuary has the capacity to store double the CO2 of a 20-year-old Pacific Northwest forest of the same size.
  • In estuaries, carbon is quickly converted into plant-based material, buried in the sediment, and becomes oxygen free just a few millimeters under the surface.
  • Researchers found that if estuaries are not disturbed, they do not have the same risk of suddenly converting mass amounts of carbon into the atmosphere.
