Artist Statement We built Cetacealab in 2001 and formed the North Coast Cetacean Society, a charitable organization dedicated to the research and protection of whales in BC coastal waters.


We began our research into the behavior of whales in the early 1990s. This was during our time at Orcalab, a land-based whale research station on Hanson Island. With time we realized that most of the research being done on cetacean populations was concentrated in the southern waters of British Columbia. We decided to take the knowledge we had gained and travel north, where known humpback whale and orca activity exists, but with little research being done. Our first destination was Hartley Bay. Here we were to meet with the Hereditary Chief, Johnny Clifton, and ask for permission to build a whale research station within Gitga'at territory. To our amazement and respect, within just weeks of meeting, this permission was granted.


All the proceeds generated from the sale of our photographs is directed to support and maintain our research here in the remote outer great bear rainforest.
