The Society for Ecological and Coastal Research - SEACR - is a non-profit organization, established in 1998, dedicated to scientific research on the ecology of nearshore marine systems. SEACR is managed through the Whale Research Lab based in the Geography Department at the University of Victoria. We focus most of our research efforts on the west coast of Vancouver Island. At that site we have long terms detailed studies of interaction between gray whales, zooplankton communities and other habitat elements. Community ecology dominates most of the current work. We conduct extensive field research employing boat-based surveys, remote sensing and data collection techniques, and advanced sonar technology to collect information on marine creatures great and small, and combine these field data sets with cutting-edge Geographic Information System analysis.
