Marine Mammal Observer Volunteer
Help discover important habitats for harbour porpoise in B.C. and support our efforts to protect and conserve porpoises and their habitats
We are studying harbour porpoise, one of the most common and most widely distributed of all whales, porpoises and dolphins.
Our Marine Mammal Observer volunteers help us gather data that our scientists can use to look at seasonal abundance, habitat use and other factors that are important for species management and conservation decisions. They also contribute to our efforts to raise awareness for some of the world’s smallest cetaceans.
PLEASE NOTE: We can currently only offer in-person training for this position on Wednesdays/Thursdays.
