10,000 hours and going strong! Raincoast Conservation Research vessel Achiever hitting a milestone this fall from her tireless efforts of conservation science, youth engagement, media, and funder trips. Seems fitting to hit the milestone during a stormy fall day.
Raincoast Conservation research vessel Achiever returning from a charter out on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. 57 species observed over the past two weeks. Amazing to see the biodiversity of these waters.
That’s a whale of a family tree – Killer whales can be individually ID’d by their markings & dorsal fin shape. We can use this info to keep track of who’s related to who and their movement. Kept these books close at hand while on board The Achiever!
Raincoast Conservations research vessel Achiever is in full swing of its refit — new bow sections in place. Work continues on her transom. Getting some help from the guys at Commodore’s Boats.
