By becoming a member of the Vancouver Aquarium Wild Killer Whale Adoption Program you will be directly supporting research on wild killer whales. Continuing research will lead to a better understanding of the whales, their place in the ocean ecosystem, and the conservation measures necessary to protect them.

 

The Wild Killer Whale Adoption Program produces a print newsletter and an emailblast newsletter that provide news about the wild killer whales in British Columbia and updates on the research projects funded by or associated with the Adoption Program.

The "Blackfish Sounder" is our eight-page, colour newsletter that is produced annually for active members of the Wild Killer Whale Adoption Program. Samples of the Blackfish Sounder are available under 'Members Newsletter' and active members or donors can log into the website and read the most current issues. 

The 'Whale News' is our email updates that are produced bi-monthly and provide updates and/or recent sightings of the wild killer whales along the British Columbia coast as well as interesting stories or up coming events. To sign up for the Whale News, please register as a new member of the Wild Killer Whale Adoption Program website.
