NEWS: Offshore Survey Adventures: Part III

Oct 11, 2015

On August 6, 2015, the CCGS John P. Tully departed the Institute of Ocean Sciences on a mission: to find and document some of the largest animals living in the Northeast Pacific Ocean. The aim was to collect data on when and where these animals, many of which are at risk of endangerment, are spending time in B.C. waters. The following is an account of the Tully’s adventure on the high seas.


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!
