In 2004, we had identified 42 humpback whales in the caamano sound to douglas channel region. by the end of 2016 this number had increased dramatically and we now have 420 individuals in our catalogue. many return year after year and can be thought of as seasonal resident humpback whales. this increasing concentration of whales indicates just how important it is to keep the bc coast healthy and free of tanker traffic.

Our favourite dynamic duo is back again! hook (top) and amy (bottom) were seen together in beauchemin channel as part of a larger bubble-net feeding group. hook and amy are seen travelling and feeding together year after year and we always look forward to their return to our coast. these id shots were taken by nicole and bunker during their stay out at the rennison camp, a research station run by the gitga'at first nations. thanks guys!

Humpbacks 'playing' with a log. i have never seen humpbacks interacting with a floating log the way these two were. they were pushing it around with their heads, carrying to on their pectoral fins and resting at the surface with it on their backs. other logs floated by but were not of interest to the whales. it was wonderful and fascinating to observe this play-like behaviour.

“i guess we should tell capt. bob how i lost my leg!” @jacobbury loving the shock factor of his wrestling a boat prop in the red sea. we got to see some incredible whales up in the northern islands off vancouver island. what a crazy place, not all that different from the remote waters off the red sea.... but a lot colder. #bcwhales #telegraphcove

How exciting is this to witness not just once but three times!!! we were all thrilled to watch the 5 orcas hunting seals and teaching their young. we even got to watch a full breach. this is the third time this year whales have come into our bay! #bcwhales #orcas #killerwhales #bcwaters #gabriola #stuartchannel #davisonsummer2018

This image is taken from land. these two humpback whales bubble net fed not 10meters offshore from the lab yesterday morning. we were thrilled to recognize these two as long term residents smiley and camaano!

they continued aroud fin island bubble net feeding. the fin island research station is in an ideal location to study this species and their long lasting social bonds. #bcwhales

The recent media coverage of the orca whales has the whole world watching. these magnificent creatures must be protected... they are a vital part of our unique ocean ecosystem πŸ’™
