Sea Turtles In B.C.
From the enormous blue whale to the petite harbour porpoise, the B.C. Cetacean Sightings Network has collected reports of 23 different species of cetaceans, and three species of sea turtle in B.C. waters. Unfortunately, 16 of these species are listed at-risk. To learn more about the identification and natural history of these animals, check out Wild Whales, the home of the B.C. Cetacean Sightings Network.
Throughout the year, BCCSN staff also do a variety of outreach events and presentations to recruit and train potential observers around the coast. Find out about upcoming events here.
