2. WildResearch's 2017 Pelagic Seabird Birding Fundraiser is THIS WEEKEND - Sunday, May 7
WildResearch's Spring 2017 Pelagic Trip Fundraiser will run on Sunday May 7, coinciding with the Tofino Shorebird Festival! Spots are filling up, so be sure to book your spot soon! For details about the trip and for information on how our current annual members can book for the trip, please see the information below.
WildResearch's upcoming pelagic trip will follow the same itinerary as our previous pelagic trips; the ship we charter (M.V. Frances Barkley) will leave from the dock in Ucluelet BC at 7 am on Sunday May 7, 2017, travel to La Perouse Bank, and return to Ucluelet at 2:30pm (on the same day). WildResearch's pelagic trips are a fantastic opportunity to view pelagic seabird species rarely seen from shore. Click here for previous trip details and photos. In addition to our trip, there will also be a lot of exciting events happening in the area that weekend as part of the 20th annual Tofino Shorebird Festival, which will take place May 5th to 7th.
The early bird ticket rates are no longer available, but tickets can still be purchased at full price ($275). In addition to purchasing a ticket, all trip participants will be required to hold a current WildResearch membership at the time of the pelagic trip. For more details, see membership information. Proceeds generated from the pelagic trip fundraiser will go toward running WildResearch’s conservation research programs.
