The Discovery Passage Aquarium is hosting a talk on the return of Humpback Whales to BC’s Coast on February 26th (7.00 PM, Maritime Heritage Centre, free entry). Presenter Jackie Hildering is a researcher with the Marine Education and Research Society and she wishes to share their research with those who are most often on or near the water. Discussion will include how we can work together to better understand these giants and the risks they face (for the sake of boater and whale safety).
As an avid diver and underwater photographer, Jackie is also known as “The Marine Detective” with recent on-camera experience including being featured on Animal Planet’s “Wild Obsession” series and in the BBC production “New threat to Canada's Pacific humpback whales?” It indeed promises to be an informative and entertaining!
