Humpback Adoption Program
By adopting a Bay of Fundy Humpback Whale you support the ongoing research conducted by Brier Island Whale and Seabird Cruises’ Research Division which includes rescue efforts by Fundy East Whale Rescue. These studies will give everyone a better understanding of these animals and their habitat. Funds raised from this program will be used to update rescue tools, cameras and related equipment, and fuel for our dedicated research cruises. You will receive a certificate suitable for framing, a photograph of “your” whale, sighting history, biography, and an annual update for five years.
