Our logo shows a stylized Marbled Murrelet.
The Marbled Murrelet is a west coast seabird that requires old growth forests for nesting. It was once common throughout our region but is now an at-risk species. We selected this bird as our logo because it symbolizes marvelous wild nature that is threatened by impacts of human activity. The SCCA is committed to the protection of this wonderful bird and many other species-at-risk.
In 2001, the SCCA initiated a precedent-setting legal challenge before the BC Supreme Court, in which the nesting habitat of the threatened marbled murrelet was protected by a decision to overturn logging approvals.
The logo was designed by Karen Weissenborn of Grafix Printing and Design Services in Sechelt.
