For many of us, living on the west coast of Canada means getting out on the water and enjoying the incredible spectacle of the nature that surrounds us. For others that enjoyment extends into a passion. A passion to understand and protect that marine environment.
The Marine Education and Research Society (MERS) is one such group with a passion to understand and protect. With a focus on Humpback and Minke whales, MERS also works to reduce harm to other marine species and to educate the public on how to best protect our natural gifts.
Maybe you've seen their campain posters at your marina reminding us to be cautions and respectful around marine life. If you haven't and you want to learn more about what this hard working group of people are doing please follow the link.
