Sierra Quadra
They’re big, they’re beautiful, and they’re back from the brink of extinction!

Join Sierra Quadra for a stunning presentation on humpback whales by Marine Education and Research Society (MERS) researcher Jackie Hindering, at the Quadra Community Centre. Doors open at 7pm (remember our home-baked goodies) and the program begins at 7:30pm. Admission is by donation. It promises to be an informative and entertaining evening! 

In addition to sharing MERS’ research on Humpback feeding and rate of entanglement, Jackie will discuss how the fortunate return of these giants from the brink of extinction necessitates increased boater awareness about avoiding collision and what to do if entanglement is witnessed. 

As an educator, avid diver and underwater photographer, Jackie is also known as 'The Marine Detective' with recent appearances on Animal Planet’s 'Wild Obsession' series and in the BBC productions 'New threat to Canada's Pacific humpback whales?' and 'Ingenious Animals.'
