Many Powell Riverites have had the treat of marine life sightings from ocean view homes and ferries.
One Powell Riverite took it a step further. Susan Mackay started WOWs or Wild Ocean Whale Society in 2010 and since then registered it as a non-profit 2 years ago.
Mackay’s WOWs monitors the numbers, species, sightings, migration habits, welfare and behavior of whales, dolphins and porpoise in our inside waters. Check out the site: whalesanddolphinsbc.com
