East Limestone Island

East Limestone Island is located in the K'uuna Gwaay Conservancy on Haida Gwaii. This island is home to Laskeek Bay Conservation Society's remote field station, where the organization has been conducting long-term monitoring and research for nearly 30 years with the support of citizen scientist volunteers. These volunteers spend a week on the island supporting our staff to monitor the marine and terrestrial ecosystems. Data gathered, including marine mammal sightings, contributes to a wide range of broader research projects, including the work of the BC Cetacean Sightings Network.

Where the Whales Are

We see whales all around Laskeek Bay and from the shores of East Limestone Island.

Whales are most frequently seen in the spring and early summer.
