Printable Species ID Guide

Download our printable guide to assist with the identification of all whale, dolphin, porpoise, and sea turtle species that you may encounter in British Columbia.  Cetacean and sea turtle identification takes time and practice!  If you are unsure of what species you are observering, send us photos or a note of distinguishing characteristics and behaviour.  We are always happy to help!   Our WhaleReport app contains a helpful identification guide as well.
