This summer the BC Cetacean Sightings Network is spending some time in the field on the central coast of BC. Covering the area between Port Hardy and Bella Bella onboard the Vancouver Aquarium’s research vessel ‘Skana’, the BCCSN hopes to create new relationships with potential observers and survey the coast to help assess cetacean abundance. The ‘From the Field’ series of news posts will highlight some of the discoveries and encounters along the way.

From the Field #1:

If a picture is worth a thousand words, what is a video worth? To get a taste of the survey work being done by BCCSN supervisor Dr. Lance Barrett-Lennard, check out this video shot in early August on the central coast. This beautiful video was shot by Jeremy Levin using high powered cameras with large zoom! What luck!
