If you believe in giants
Legends and children's books are alive with endearing and magnificent animals. And amongst these creatures are whales! Here, as in all the world's oceans, Man has made their populations more vulnerable: whaling historically, chemical contamination and noise pollution today, climate change tomorrow. If, like us, you believe in giants - the whales of the St. Lawrence - help us to better understand and raise awareness of them in order to better protect them... so that they never go extinct!
By the spring of 2020, we hope to raise $200,000 to complete the funding of the CIMM expansion to accommodate the skeletons of a right whale, a fin whale and a humpback whale. We will then have the most complete and impressive collection of cetacean skeletons on display anywhere in Canada!

NEW! DONATIONS THAT WILL GIVE US A WHALE OF A BOOST!
Show your support for marine mammals on a plaque in front of the Marine Mammal Interpretation Centre (CIMM) in Tadoussac. The plaques will be inlaid in one of 600 cobblestones composing the blue whale silhouette gracing the Jardin de la Grève. Each plaque represents a donation of $1,000.
Objective: 100 plaques to welcome new giants in 2020
Make your donation today by mailing a cheque in the amount of $1,000 to 108 rue de la Cale-Sèche, by phone at 418-235-4701, or make a donation online through the form above. We will contact you to confirm the inscription to appear on the plaque that will thank you for your donation.

Your plaque will be placed in this life-size blue whale silhouette in the cobblestones leading to the Interpretation Centre.
MAKE A DONATION FOR THE FUTURE
Whales have a life expectancy comparable to our own. To understand them, they need to be monitored from generation to generation. Their protection requires concrete actions sustained over the long term.

ADOPT A BELUGA
The belugas’ story is that of the St. Lawrence. Their future is our future. Belugas are the barometer of the health of the St. Lawrence and their population is declining.
- When you adopt a beluga known to researchers,
- You support scientific research;
- You participate in the search for solutions;
- You increase awareness of belugas and their plight;
- You show your attachment to the St. Lawrence and its inhabitants.
