Cracroft Point Whale Research Station on Johnson Strait  [50°33′ N & 126°40′ W]

The work of OrcaLab is centred on the philosophy that it is possible to study the wild without interfering with lives or habitat. A network of hydrophones, positioned around the orcas’ “core habitat”, help monitor their movements all year round.  Supplementing the acoustic data are visual sightings of orcas as they pass OrcaLab, and reports from land observation sites staffed by OrcaLab volunteers during the summer, as well as, reports from other researchers and whale watchers who share observations and information.
