This questionnaire is for those wanting to help with "See a Blow? Go Slow!" signage to reduce risk to whales by sponsoring and/or positioning the signs in locations on the coast of British Columbia. Please know that the messaging and campaign is supported by Fisheries and Oceans Canada.

The “See a Blow? Go Slow!” signs are made of durable alupanel and dimensions are 18.5″ x 24″ (~47 cm x 61 cm).

Sponsorship information will be included at the bottom of the sign.
It can:
(1) state "This sign sponsored by . . .";
(2) be a dedication as a gift or memorial; and/or
(3) include a logo. 

A $50 donation covers the cost of one sign and tax receipts are available for Canadian donations. The exception is that Canadian Revenue Agency rules do not allow us to issue tax receipts for signs promoting businesses.
