LNG Canada helps Ocean Wise to expand whale conservation research and education

The North Coast killer whale and humpback whale conservation research programs run by Ocean Wise will be able to expand thanks to a $750,000 contribution by LNG Canada over three years. The funds will also permit Ocean Wise to deliver ocean literacy programs to Kitimat- and Terrace-area schools in British Columbia.

Ocean Wise researchers have been investigating the abundance, site fidelity and habitat requirements of North Coast cetaceans since 2014. This work is also supported by funding from the Port of Prince Rupert (a Green Marine participant) and Fisheries and Oceans Canada (a Green Marine supporter).
