Education

The Right Time to learn the Right Things about the Right Whale


CWI is committed to sharing knowledge and facilitating discussion about the biology and conservation of marine mammals and the protection of their marine environment. Our work is not complete until the results of our research are shared with the general public, mariners, and policy makers.

Communicating Science and Conservation

CWI's scientists and whale rescuers frequently give presentations on, and participate in meetings about, a variety of topics, such as general marine mammal biology, whale rescue, and our research and conservation initiatives and goals. Let us know if you would like to have us speak to your group or organization.

Marine Mammal Summer Camp

In collaboration with Saint Mary’s University, we offer a Marine Mammal Summer Camp for youth ages 14-17, each summer.

Dockside Chats

An important part of our work is to speak with and understand the concerns of fishermen. We make a point of having 'dockside chats' with fishermen and community members and include researchers and other NGOs. We believe that informal meetings and discussions are one of the keys to sharing knowledge and perspectives, facilitating open dialogue, and finding a positive way forward. We would be happy to stop and chat on your dock, if we're in the area.

Marine Life Interpretation Centre

As a collaborative effort with the Roosevelt Campobello International Park we established an interpretation centre dedicated to education on marine life, conservation and stewardship in the Bay of Fundy.
