Raincoast calls on military to respect the critical habitat of killer whales

Raincoast urges the federal government and Canadian Navy to exclude military training exercises in and around the critical habitat of southern resident killer whales.   The suspicious death of L112 warrants full disclosure of the Canadian military activities in the Juan de Fuca that were occurring at the time of the whale’s death.

Raincoast’s in-house scientists, collaborating graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professors make us unique among conservation groups. We work with First Nations, academic institutions, government, and other NGOs to build support and inform decisions that protect aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the wildlife that depend on them. We conduct ethically applied, process-oriented, and hypothesis-driven research that has immediate and relevant utility for conservation deliberations and the collective body of scientific knowledge.

We investigate to understand coastal species and processes. We inform by bringing science to decision-makers and communities. We inspire action to protect wildlife and wildlife habitats.
