Thank you to our Dedicated Volunteers

The Marineland Right Whale Project could not function without the countless hours of volunteer assistance to find and follow the whales. Teams of trained surveyors brave cold and wind to carry out their observations, often without seeing a whale on their survey days. There are also the many opportunistic spotters, who likewise contribute. Many lasting friendships have blossomed during the 10 weeks the teams are together. This video is a compilation of team photos and other recollections of the past season. Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributes to the science and stewardship of right whales.
