We Need Your Help – Send Us Your Photos And Sighting Information!

If you’re out and happen to see harbor porpoises or harbor seals, let us know!  We need your help to build a better picture of where harbor porpoises and harbor seals are going in the Salish Sea.

  1. If you can, snap a picture and send it to us. This can be tricky, but if you manage it we might even be able to identify the animals you saw!
  2. Send information on the date, time, and location you were in when you saw the animals.
  3. Let us know if you saw the porpoises/seals doing any specific behaviors (e.g. wake-surfing, foraging, etc.)

Send your photos and/or sighting information to us via email at cindy.elliser@pacmam.org or katrina.maciver@pacmam.org.


Support Pacific Mammal Research Through Community Partnerships:

PacMam believes in working with and for the community.  As part of this mission we’ve partnered with Shanni Welsh, the Bellingham artist behind Fat Dragonfly Collection, to raise awareness and share our love of the PNW.

Shanni is donating 20% of proceeds made on sales of her Pacific Northwest Bay” collection to PacMam!  Please head over to her website now (www.fatdragonfly.com) and check out this collection as well as the many other great pieces of artwork she has available.  You can also find Fat Dragonfly at Farmer’s Markets and various art shows and festivals in the area.
