YOU CAN HELP!
By adopting a North Atlantic right whale you can help us try to resolve these problems. Adopt an individual whale, a mother/calf pair, or a whole family for yourself, as a gift for family and friends, as a memoriam, or for your classroom or group. The tax deductible adoption fee will go towards costs for right whale research, conservation and education programs including:
2006 Grand Manan Whale &
Seabird Research Station Inc.
Network - Maritimes
This team is primarily focused on right whales in the Bay of Fundy but is capable of disentangling other species as the need arises and can respond in a limited fashion in other nearby locations. This is a co-operative program with a number of groups including the Fisheries and Oceans Canada, New Brunswick Department of Fisheries, Campobello Whale Rescue Team, New England Aquarium, Center for Coastal Studies, local whale watch companies, interested residents and the Grand Manan Whale & Seabird Research Station. Fisheries and Oceans Canada provided the funds for equipment purchased.
