Canadian Whale Institute
The Canadian Whale Institute was formed in 1997 to increase awareness of the North Atlantic right whale; one of the world’s most endangered large whales. The Canadian Whale Institute promotes stewardship with mariners to reduce the two human activities that are the major factors affecting the whale’s recovery – vessel strikes and entanglement in commercial fishing gear. We focus our education, research and conservation projects in Canadian waters including the Bay of Fundy, Scotian Shelf and Gulf of St. Lawrence. We strive to increase marine mammal awareness through directed programs with the marine industry, governments and the public.
