Additional MERS Marine Wildlife Rescue

As an organization with expertise and a history of responding to threats imposed on marine wildlife, we are often involved in various incidents of wildlife rescue. These range from marine mammals in or near areas of toxic spills to seabirds that are unwell due to natural or unknown causes. We handle these situations on a case-by-case basis and collaborate with other organizations, such as the BC Marine Mammal Response Network, Vancouver Aquarium Marine Mammal Rescue and the Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society to achieve safe and effective rescue and maximize chances of survival.
