The Whale Camp

Initiative Type: Programmes

Belém Statement Area: Ocean Resources

Initiative Location: Canada

Time Frame: 1984-Ongoing


Established in 1984, The Whale Camp's marine science program has had an exceptional experiential impact on hundreds of students ages ten to seventeen. The Whale Camp's hands-on programming and vibrantly personal experiences brings students face-to-face to study whales, porpoises, seals, puffins and numerous other marine and avian species in their own natural habitat. These experiences have proven to be both life-affirming and life-changing, igniting and inspiring a passionate curiosity to learn more about our ocean's and planet's life processes.
