The Whale Interpretive Centre is located in Telegraph Cove, BC and run by the non-profit Johnstone Strait Killer Whale Interpretive Centre Society. The Centre was founded in 2002 to provide a venue in which to increase public awareness about the biology of marine mammals and the anthropogenic threats facing their populations. The Whale Interpretive Centre is home to one of the best collections of marine mammal skeletons in British Columbia.
The objective of the Whale Interpretive Centre is to provide information to the public for increased awareness of the biology, habitat needs and threats to killer whales, fin whales, humpback whales and sea otters as well as other local marine mammals.
The Center is located on the end of the dock on the west side of the wharf. A Whale Trail interpretive panel is located just outside the entrance to the center. Watch for whales as they occasionally come past the entrance to Telegraph Cove.
