Exclusive Whale Research Tour May 26th - Only 11 Seats Available

Ever wondered what it’s like to be a whale scientist?

Join our exclusive tour on May 26th with researchers from Keta Coastal Conservation and experience a day in the field while learning about the latest research on humpback whales in BC, including Keta’s projects. You’ll also learn about the day-to-day workings of a non-profit society, and the challenges and rewards of running an NGO. And of course, whales are included! At the end of the day, you’ll take home a copy of Keta’s latest humpback whale ID catalogue.

All proceeds are donated to Keta Coastal Conservation.
