Marine Education and Research Society WEBINAR Request Form
MERS provides free webinars that are aimed at being highly engaging and entertaining while having the strong potential to reduce threats to marine life and boaters. A very high priority is to update boaters on the amended Marine Mammal Regulations (federal law) and to also to share our research on Humpback Whales and discuss how to reduce the threats of collision and what to do in case an entanglement is witnessed.
The increase in the number of Humpbacks off the coast of British Columbia is so fortunate but necessitates increased awareness from boaters because Humpbacks behave so differently than the whale species boaters are more accustomed to i.e. Orca.
We of course have limited capacity and must weigh out the potential conservation gains of our webinars against associated costs. To facilitate this evaluation, please fill out the following information. Requests will be reviewed weekly.
Note that, as an alternative to a webinar, it is also possible to request access to videos of our presentations. See the link at www.mersociety.org/presentations.
