The session will take place at 7 PM at Room 184 of Northwest Community College, and offers an opportunity for residents to learn more about their work and find out how they can become engaged in the research of the waters of the North Coast.
The project has a very scientific name for unfamiliar marine observers to try to wrap their tongues around, that of Cetacean Research Program.
It's an initiative that has already been very busy, through the study of whales transiting through North Coast waters. You can catch up to some of their work through their facebook page, which provides some fascinating photography and videos of the close up observation of the Marine Mammals.
The North Coast Initiative hopes to not only learn more about the cetaceans in the area, but provide outreach, education and training with North Coast residents.
Coordinator Caitlin Birdsall has provided an introduction to the research project through the Vancouver Aquarium's website.
