Since 1979, the overarching program objectives have been:
(1) to assist fishermen in the release of whales and other large marine animals from fishing gear, thereby decreasing fishing downtime and damage to their gear;
(2) to release entrapped animals as quickly and safely as possible;
(3) to collect information from fishermen and communities about marine animals which inhabit the waters around them, and
(4) to add to scientific knowledge on these species in Newfoundland and Labrador waters.
A non-profit organization that tends to the entrapments and strandings of marine animals, such as whales, turtles, and basking sharks.
