Apr 12, 2017

20 marine scientists, specializing in anthropogenic noise and the endangered southern resident killer whale population, have teamed up to produce a Scientists Statement, urging the Canadian government to produce a concrete, funded, science-based plan for reducing underwater noise pollution in the Salish Sea.


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!
