Who You Gonna Call? Helping BC’s Marine Mammals.

We are very pleased to launch a series of four short videos aimed at increasing knowledge of how to help marine mammals in British Columbia.

These resources provide background on threats like disturbance and entanglement and provide information on what to do, and who to call, when incidents of concern are witnessed.

See below for the following videos:
#1 Marine Mammal Disturbance                #2 Whale Entanglement
#3 Seal and Sea Lion Entanglement           #4 Injured, Stranded or Dead Marine Mammals
