Please help support the Marine Education and Research Society this winter! MERS is a small team that does very big work protecting and studying BC's wonderful whales and marine life. I have had the honour of being the Co-Chair for MERS since spring 2020 and on the board since 2017.
A few of my favourite things that MERS does work on is responding to entanglements, such as when a humpback is entangled in a fishing line. They also do a lot of education for boaters on what to do around whales ("See a blow? Go Slow!"), MERS hosts an amazing marine naturalist workshop as well. Their research on humpbacks is exceptional and they have even discovered the novel feeding strategy of "Trap-Feeding".
Like many charities, MERS has been hit hard over the past year by the pandemic. It has affected their fundraising trips and education programs that provide vital support for their work.
All donations, big and small, help support MERS and their work to protect and understand BC's marine life.
If you want to support MERS monthly please sign up to be a monthly donor here. A little bit every month goes a long way - it provides MERS with consistent funding.
MERS also has an ocean store!!! You can buy lots of whaley and marine-themed things. There are some whale masks as well!
If you are into doing just a one-time donation, please donate from this page. :) *Donations $25 or over will receive a tax receipt*.
I want to thank you for all of your support and if you have a cause that you're passionate about please share it with me.
"Small actions and lots of people = big change!"
Thank you and Happy New Year!
