The Ugʷiwa’/Cape Caution – Blunden Bay Conservancy is within the traditional territories of the Gwa’sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw Nation. This area of the coast played a significant role in the lives of First Nations and continues to be an area of importance today.
Within its confines are sandy beaches, tidal flats, sea cliffs, seaside rock platforms, rugged points and rocky headlands. Just off shore are kelp beds, grey whale feeding grounds. The upland is generally flat and low lying and has the characteristic features of a coastal bog forest with small streams, ponds, and swamps.
