Help with Signage

Please help with positioning and/or sponsoring “See a Blow? Go Slow!” signs on BC's coast to reduce the risk of collision for whales and boaters. This is essential now that Humpback Whales have thankfully returned from the brink of extinction and are common on our coast.  They behave very differently from whales like Orca that boaters are more used to. The awareness of how to reduce the risk of hitting a Humpback helps other whale species too. Collision with Humpbacks has led to very significant human injury (examples here) and material loss.  

A donation can be given to sponsor the sign (at $100 each) and tax receipts are available.  Sponsorship can be recognized on the sign with names, dedication, and /or logo. Please know that it is as valuable to help position signs as it is to sponsor them.
