Our co-founder wins prestigious award in marine conservation!

Protecting whales by keeping the ocean quiet

We are thrilled to announce that our co-founder, Dr Rob Williams, has won one of five prestigious Pew Fellowships in Marine Conservation.  He will use the award to fund field work to explore effects of ocean noise on whales, dolphins, fish and ocean health.  He will also build partnerships with industry, governments, other scientists and conservation groups to find solutions to make noisy ocean habitats quieter.   

Your Aeroplan Beyond Miles donations have played a key role in supporting the field work that helped Rob win this award.  We can't thank you enough for your continued support.
