Whale Seeker is an innovative, pending B Corp company, whose founders believe that whales and humans can harmoniously coexist in healthy and profitable ways. The company is making its biological and AI expertise, technology and services as accessible as possible to spark new ideas and standards for safer maritime transits in waters occupied by these marine mammals.
The company based in Montreal, Quebec, was created in 2018 when Emily Charry, a biologist and now the CEO, joined lead biologist Bertrand Charry to analyse whale images for various research and management projects. Antoine Gagné heads the technology side of the business.
Dedicated to innovation, Whale Seeker’s team possesses and practices firm ethics in combining available imagery, AI diagnostic tools and biological relevancy to tailor its solutions to client needs so they are neither over- nor under-engineered and remain affordable.
