NEWS: Recent whale sightings a reminder to keep a lookout

Sep 17, 2015

It’s been an exceptionally exciting summer for the B.C. Cetacean Sightings Network, and it’s not over yet! As many of us return to work and school, it’s important to remember there is still ample opportunity to see cetaceans at this time of year. In fact, two recent sightings near the Vancouver area have reminded us that cetaceans can be spotted anywhere at any time. Read on to find out more about what was spotted.


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!
