The Return of Giants

Oct 8, 2020

There is a new resource available from our friends at the Marine Education and Research Society who are represented on the CPS-ECP Environment Committee.

In their role on the Committee, MERS will also be presenting at the virtual AGM on October 23rd at 1600 EST. Be sure to join for an update on resources and steps forward.

As a reminder, they have recorded two of their most popular presentations: “Boaters and Marine Mammals – Safety & Stewardship” and “Return of the Giants”. You can also request a group presentation or join one live. See

We promise, these videos are as entertaining as they are educational. Please share this opportunity because sharing equals increased awareness!
