It's Time to Listen with Megan and Janie

Wednesday March 23, 2022 : 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Clayoquot Sound Community Theatre - Tofino

There will be a short film and discussion from speakers Janie Wray (North Coast Cetacean Society) and Megan Hockin-Bennett (natural history camera operator).

The onset of COVID-19 created devastation worldwide. But for whale researchers like Janie Wray, who has been studying the unique calls of killer, humpback, and fin whales in British Columbia for more than 20 years, the pandemic presented a unique opportunity - a chance to hear how whales respond to a quieter underwater world.

This will be a whale festival button event and buttons will be available on site.

Megan will join us at the theatre in Tofino and Janie via zoom.  We encourage you to attend in person.  If you are not in the area, you can also join via zoom.
