In order to highlight their fifth year of collaboration, the companies involved in the Eco-Whale Alliance are sharing their pride through the new PROUD MEMBER logo that they have all adopted. More aware than ever of their role in educating visitors concerning the fragility of the marine environment, member companies collaborate with the marine park and the Group for Research and Education on Marine Mammals (GREMM) to offer high-quality sea cruises, based on the respect and protection of whales. In addition to contributing each year to the Eco-Whale Fund (administered by the Fondation de la Faune du Québec) with the goal of providing financial support for scientific research on whales , Alliance members have developed tools to promote best practices in navigation, improve the quality of interpretation on board their boats, and offer you a distinctive and rewarding experience.
Give them your support and do your part to protect the whales. Look for the Eco-Whale Alliance’s PROUD MEMBER logo when planning your next cruise. For more information, check out the following site: http://www.eco-baleine.ca/e_index.html
