Working for a better world...

where whales and humans meet.


Support Research

The occurrence and behaviour of solitary sociable belugas is so very unique that long-term, in-depth research is needed if we are to better understand them and offer them the greatest protection possible.

There is other critical information that we also need to learn, like "where did they come from" and "why have they become separated from their family groups?" 

Exciting opportunities also exist to gain valuable insights into beluga whale cognition, acoustics and other unique behavioural studies.

We urgently need support for equipment to conduct our research.   Please check out our wish list and consider donating the equipment or designating funds specifically for a particular item of your choice.

With your support we can make some amazing and important discoveries! Most of all, we can continue putting what we learn to work for the protection of  these vulnerable young beluga whales.

Become a Beluga Sighting Partner

The WSP primarily uses benign and non-invasive methods in our research programs. We do not capture and attach mechanical devices to the lone beluga whales in order to track them. Instead, we are continually expanding a sighting network consisting of  vigilant fishermen, residents, school children, visitors, other researchers and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans in Atlantic Canada. We depend on prompt reports of beluga whale sightings from this network . 

If you live in or visit  Atlantic Canada, contact us to let us know that you would like to become a sighting partner in our network .

The number to call if a beluga whale is sighted anywhere in Atlantic Canada or in other waters outside their normal range of the St. Lawrence River and the Arctic, is: 1-902-889-2679
