Return of Giants - presentation on Humpbacks Whales

  • 3 Nov 2018
  • 7:00 PM
  • Nicholas Sonntag Marine Education Centre, Gibsons
Join us for a free presentation on Humpback Whales by Marine Education and Research Society (MERS) researcher Jackie Hildering.

In addition to sharing MERS’ research on Humpback feeding strategies and rate of entanglement, Jackie will discuss how the fortunate return of these giants from the brink of extinction necessitates increased boater awareness about avoiding collision and what to do if entanglement is witnessed. 

As an educator, cold water diver and underwater photographer, Jackie is known as “The Marine Detective” with on-camera experience including being featured on Animal Planet’s “Wild Obsession” series and in the BBC productions “New threat to Canada's Pacific Humpback Whales?” and “Ingenious Animals”. She has been referenced as the standup comic of marine conservation. This event indeed promises to be informative and entertaining! See

Doors open at 6:30 pm and the presentation starts at 7:00 pm.

Location: Nicholas Sonntag Marine Education Centre, 473 Gower Point Rd, Gibsons,
