OrcaLab research is land based research centre, which works well in their area with its many waterways and relatively small distances. OrcaLab’s location on Hanson Island at Blackney Pass in Canada is perfect for reception of radio signals from Johnstone Strait & Blackfish Sound, two of the most important areas used by the whales.
