Expanding Our Dedication To The Marine Environment

Building on our company value of supporting local non-profit organizations dedicated to research, education and conservation of the marine environment, I am full of pride announcing a new local partnership pledge. We have come to agreement with the Alaska Whale Foundation, (https://www.alaskawhalefoundation.org/ )  to donate a percentage of our profits to their organization. Additionally, during the tour check out process our customers will have the opportunity to make donations to AWF and the other great organizations we support.

AWF studies marine mammals and coastal ecosystems utilizing the resources of established scientists and collaborators, and ambitious graduate and undergraduate students.  As well, the organization has developed a permanent research base in a wild and pristine coastal ecosystem on Baranof Island.  Today, AWF mission extends beyond research: to effect change through ambitious science-driven research, conservation and education programs.

Our team and I hope that you are as inspired as we are to help sustain the humpback whale population and preserve our fragile ocean ecosystem. Through our new partnership with the Alaska Whale Foundation, we are helping to gain critical information on these charismatic creatures, and to seek ways to protect and preserve them.

At AWSE we align ourselves with strategic allies who are working in the realms of science, policy and education in hopes of empowering their efforts with the support of AWSE’s profit sharing commitment and the generous donations of our guests. Our strategy instills hope in humanity and stimulates the global community to protect our seas.
