Since the early 1980’s the Grand Manan Whale and Seabird Research Station has been conducting science-based activities in the Bay of Fundy to support our motto: Research and Education to support Conservation. Our Harbour Porpoise Release Program was set up to assist local fishermen with the safe release of porpoises from their herring weirs. Over the years, hundreds were released alive back into the wild.
