NEWS: Life onboard a cetacean research vessel (Part 2)

Mar 31, 2014

Chad Nordstrom boarded the cetacean research vessel CCGS RV John P. Tully on March 11, 2014 to participate in a 2 week survey of the whales, dolphins, and porpoises that live off the coast of British Columbia. This is the story of his journey, as he travelled from Sidney, B.C. on Vancouver Island’s south tip to the North Coast’s Browning Entrance and back.


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!
