Looking for a getaway? Here’s a chance to do just that. The 15th edition of Whale Tales will be held on February 13-14. Every year since 2006, the activity has taken place in Maui, Hawaii. The 2021 edition will offer an opportunity to take a virtual escapade to the warm and sunny climate of the Pacific. Hosted on a web platform, it will allow whale enthusiasts to enjoy the event without having to travel. Participants will have the chance to interact with researchers.

With several species of whales having left the St. Lawrence for the winter, cetacean lovers will be delighted to participate in this event that promises to be full of discoveries. Something to dream about and get away from it all on Valentine’s Day.

Hosted by the Whale Trust research team, this virtual meeting brings together scientists, photographers, filmmakers, conservationists and other whale aficionados for two days of engaging presentations. Participants will have the opportunity to better understand the latest discoveries on cetaceans, their habitat and marine conservation in general.

Whale Tales offers a tremendous opportunity to contribute to research and awareness. All funds raised will go to Hawaii-based cetacean conservation organizations. Take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity in the comfort of your own home!
