Reduce risks for whales and boaters
Help by sponsoring a sign
The fortunate increase in Humpbacks off our coast is a game changer for boater safety. Humpback Whales behave differently from whales like Orca, which many boaters are more familiar with. Humpbacks, and other baleen whales, can be oblivious to the presence of boats. They do not have biosonar like toothed whales. They can suddenly surface after long dives, or be resting just below the surface leading to increased risk of collision.
By sponsoring “See a Blow? Go Slow!” signs, you can help reduce the risk of collision for whales and boaters on BC’s coast. For a $100 minimum donation you can sponsor a sign. covers the cost of printing and shipping of one sign (tax deductible).
Please know that it is as valuable to help position signs as it is to sponsor them.
