The marine environment surrounding the Great Bear Rainforest contains the quietest ocean along the coastline of B.C. But with commercial vessel traffic in some areas of the region expected to increase seven-fold by 2025, the whales that call these waters home will soon have to contend with much more noise.

Humpback whales are known for their thunderous songs. For them, and many other species, sound is an essential part of life — the primary means by which they navigate, find food and mates, communicate with one another and avoid danger. When these sounds are joined by underwater noise from shipping, it can interfere with the ability of whales to carry out activities important for their survival.

The Ships, Whales and Acoustics in Gitga'at Territory project will monitor underwater noise and its impacts on whales using hydrophones. This work is supporting Gitga'at efforts to engage in the management of ship traffic within their territory.

After decades of absence in the wake of whaling, the remote fjords of northern British Columbia are once again home to the world's second-largest whale — the fin whale. Much of the increased ship traffic will be routed directly through this re-discovered fin whale habitat. Learn more about the Ships, Whales and Acoustics in Gitga'at Territory project and the work your 50/50 Lottery ticket will support.

HOW YOU'RE HELPING WILDLIFE IN BRITISH COLUMBIA

When you purchase a 50/50 ticket, you will be funding research and conservation efforts on the north coast of British Columbia in Gitga'at Territory, where increasing ship traffic poses a risk to recovering populations of humpback, fin and killer whales that rely on quiet oceans to survive.


Proceeds from 50/50 ticket sales will support the Ships, Whales and Acoustics in Gitga'at Territory project, which is an initiative between the Gitga'at First Nation, the North Coast Cetacean Society and WWF-Canada to develop leading-edge, real time tracking tools for whales and ships, and collaboratively develop measures to reduce the impact of commercial shipping to at-risk whales in Gitga'at Territory.
