NEWS: Report Sightings with Our New App!

Jun 23, 2015

The timing couldn’t be more fortuitous with whales spotted in Burrard Inlet yesterday as we announce the launch of WhaleReport, the B.C. Cetacean Sightings Network’s new smartphone reporting app. Developed with funding provided by Mountain Equipment Co-op, this new app provides an innovative and easy way to report your sightings. Information collected will help identify areas most important to these species at different times of the year, and changes in their distribution over time. In turn, those discoveries will inform measures taken to aid the recovery of species most at risk.


Wild Whales is the home of the B.C. Cetacean Sightings Network, a conservation and research program of the Vancouver Aquarium, in partnership with Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). We collect sightings of all cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises) and sea turtles from British Columbia and surrounding waters. Have you seen one? We'd like to know!
