There are 25 different kinds of whales that spend time along the coast of British Columbia! Come and learn about the diversity of whales in B.C. and how they make a living in the waters off our coast. Leah Thorpe, a marine educator with Cetus Research & Conservation Society, will show us how to tell these different whales apart by their size, shape and sounds as well as how we can all help protect these beautiful animals.
Explorer Day Etiquette:
- Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
- Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
- Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
- Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
- Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
- Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
