The BCCSN Sightings Portal allows citizen scientists to view and download their cetacean and sea turtle sightings, reported via WhaleReport.

Are you a citizen scientist who likes to keep track of the whales, dolphins, porpoises and sea turtles that you see along our coast?

Are you a marine professional whose company reports to the B.C. Cetacean Sightings Network while also keeping a log of sighting reports for your own records?

Do you belong to an organization that would like to use WhaleReport to collect data for your own use while also contributing to the greater BCCSN?

The BCCSN Sightings Portal allows you to view your own (or your organization’s) sighting reports on a map, quickly review what has been observed, and download your sightings in a csv file for your own use!
