We cannot thank you enough for making our Aeroplan campaign a wild success! We try to be as mobile as the whales and dolphins we study. Our organization’s mission involves striking a balance between getting our feet wet in the field, collecting our own data, wherever our work is needed, and taking our science to the national and international meetings where science is used to conserve wildlife. It is important to us to shepherd our science to decision-makers to ensure that conservation decisions are based on good evidence.
Our conservation work involves a lot of travel, both to bring students and scientists to join us in the field on collaborative, interdisciplinary projects, and to attend the conferences and meetings where important marine conservation decisions are made. The Aeroplan miles you donate are an essential part of our mission.
Our intent for this year’s campaign is to expand our program to train emerging scientists in low-income countries in the basics of conducting whale and dolphin surveys. Your miles allow us to book hotels and car rentals, pay for flights of course, and importantly, cover carbon offsets for our flights.
Thank you for being such an important part of our team.
