Description

Cetus Research & Conservation Society is a marine conservation organization, founded in 2005 to address the increasing danger to British Columbia's killer whales as a result of human activity. Operating in the waters around Victoria, Quadra Island and Alert Bay, BC, they focus on one of the three key contributors to killer whale endangerment, namely vessel traffic disturbance, working in the field to protect whales and other marine mammals from harassment and harm. They aim to promote respect for the marine environment through on-the-water and land-based education, outreach and direct monitoring activities.
