Salmon Coast hosts multi-day ecology-focused field courses for high school and university students, and recruits research project volunteers, usually undergraduate students eager for field experience. Many other Station volunteers, ranging in age from high school students to retirees, also join us to enjoy our unique lifestyle and stunning wilderness location while pitching in with the huge range of tasks necessary to operate this remote facility.
The Broughton Archipelago is a popular destination for kayaking, sailing, and power boating. Because of its central location, Salmon Coast is well-positioned to connect with visitors. We offer facility tours and informative outreach materials, and encourage visitors to share marine-mammal sightings, which are shared with the BC Cetacean Sightings Network.
Broadreach Marine Mammal Studies
Broadreach youth adventures returned once again to Salmon Coast with two groups of students in July, for eight days each, as part of their BC marine mammal college course. Salmon Coast staff members enjoyed introducing these fresh young minds to scientific sampling techniques and taking the students on marine mammal surveys through the spectacular Broughton Archipelago. This year, we also included the students in our Humpback Monitoring Survey. We look forward to hosting these groups again in 2016.
