NEWS: Getting the Killer Whale Call

Mar 24, 2015

On March 12, 2015, Tessa Danelesko, coordinator of the B.C. Cetacean Sightings Network (BCCSN), and Bailey Eagan, research analyst with the Vancouver Aquarium’s Marine Mammal Research Program (MMRP), set off to find killer whales in Burrard Inlet. They had received word of a rare event: whales very close Vancouver. It became their mission to find the group and collect valuable photographic data that could help identify who these whales were and the reason behind their exceptional visit.


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!
