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.
In collaboration with the New England Aquarium, and the Natural Resources DNA Profiling and Forensic Centre, graduate students have been studying right whale genetics since 1988. This work has shed light on previously unknown aspects of right whale history and behaviour.
As a collaborative effort with Saint Mary’s University, we are proud to host an annual Marine Mammal Summer Camp for youth ages 14-17.
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.
