Research expedition: Sorry everyone I have been further to the north searching for cetaceans on a survey. I will be updating the prior events of the transient calf T046C2 in full detail. We had an amazing adventure to the North Vancouver Island in search for marine life. Our main mission was to find transients but instead we ended up watching the Northern resident Apod A5s (A23s, A8s), three humpback whales, 200plus Pacific white sided dolphins, harbour porpoise, harbour seals, Steller sea lions, and numerous marine birds. We had missed the transients by two days.
