The State of Bonne Bay Report
August 8, 2022
Dear Friends of Bonne Bay.
The Board of Directors of the Friends of Bonne Bay are happy to announce that we have completed a major piece of work related to the environment of Bonne Bay.
Early in 2021 the Board applied for a research grant from the Centre for Social Enterprise, Memorial University and MITACS (Mathematics of Information Technology and Complex Systems) to support a research project. The project was designed to assess the "state of the environment" of Bonne Bay, to determine the extent to which its marine ecosystem is resilient and healthy, and to identify what changes have occurred in recent decades to its physical, biological, and ecological components. Subsequently, we hired a graduate student at Grenfell Campus, Memorial University, Ms. Hadiya Bamragha, to prepare a draft report. This draft was completed and following revisions by the Board, we have produced a final draft of the report.
The Board members of FOBB feel that this project report, “The State of Bonne Bay - 2022”, will assist local communities and residents understand the complex issues related to maintaining a resilient and healthy Bonne Bay, and lead the way to research in the future. We trust that the members of the Friends of Bonne Bay, and all other interested parties will read, share and discuss the findings of this extensive report, and that it will be a catalyst for further work related to the well-being of Bonne Bay.
