The habitat of the 13 species of whales living in the beautiful Saint Lawrence River is increasingly affected by human activities. We felt we wanted to help so we partnered with GREMM to adopt a beluga.

Founded in 1985, the Group for Research and Education on Marine Mammals (GREMM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to scientific research and conservation education with a focus on the whales of the St. Lawrence and their habitat. The GREMM’s mission is based on acquiring knowledge and sharing this knowledge with the general public in order to achieve its main objective: Better understanding for better protection. With a world-renowned research station and interpretation centre in Tadoussac, as well as a web magazine and a virtual living encyclopedia, GREMM has a vast influence. GREMM’s research results have provided a solid scientific basis for the establishment of marine protected areas and the development of regulations to improve our cohabitation with whales.

Since 1985, the GREMM has been conducting a beluga research program that also monitores the St. Lawrence and Great Lakes ecosystem : the St. Lawrence Beluga Project. Its mission: to better understand belugas by scientifically studying their behaviour and habitat and monitoring their health status, assisting stray or live stranded belugas, and raising the awareness of the general public with regard to these animals. Scientific research and education are essential in order to define and implement concrete actions for the recovery of the beluga and the conservation of its habitat. The St. Lawrence Beluga Project, coordinated by the GREMM, is led with a consortium of private and academic laboratories in close collaboration with Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s Maurice Lamontagne Institute, Environment Canada’s St. Lawrence Centre and the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park.
