Our First Fundraiser: Wedmesday 8th November!

Come one, come all to Pacific Mammal Research’s first official fundraiser: Trivia Fundraiser Night at Bastion Brewing Company!  Our researchers will be taking over Bastion’s regular Wednesday trivia night on November 8th at 6pm to emcee trivia questions, talk about our work in the Salish Sea, and answer any questions you have about what we do and how you can get involved.

We are excited to be partnering with our friends at Bastion for this event, who have supported PacMam from the beginning, so make sure to try some of their fantastic beer or food while you’re there.  As always Bastion’s trivia nights are FREE!  However for your chance to win great raffle prizes throughout the night you can donate for tickets.  See you there!

Researchers Head To Halifax, Nova Scotia

PacMam’s researchers are heading to Halifax, Nova Scotia for the 2017 Biennial Society for Marine Mammalogy Conference which will be held from October 22nd-27th.  The SMM Conference is a highlight of our calendar, giving researchers a chance to socialize and network with their peers from around the world during an intensive week of talks, workshops and seminars. PacMam will be presenting a video about our research on harbor porpoises in the Salish Sea, and hope to learn about new and exciting ways to continue and expand our research in future. Check out the November Newsletter for feedback from the Conference!
