The Arctic Watch Beluga Foundation

The Arctic Watch Beluga Foundation

Federal Canadian Charity for Arctic Research & Conservation

Our Mission

The Arctic Watch Beluga Foundation supports scientific research on Somerset Island and across the Canadian high Arctic. The goal is to support credible scientific work in the Canadian Arctic that can contribute to supported decision making for policy makers at local, territorial and federal levels within Canada.

About The Foundation

Since the 1950s, our family has explored the far corners of the polar worlds. We’re extremely fortunate to have access to the unspoiled and remote landscapes of the Arctic - areas that few people ever have the chance to step foot in. These areas are very special as they hold some of the last great wildlife populations of the polar regions.

As a family and team, our aim is to not only welcome travellers to the Arctic on unique experiences, but to contribute back to the polar world we love, by supporting credible research projects that will make a difference.

We started a federally registered charity that was initially focused on supporting beluga research in Cunningham Inlet (Arctic Watch) where one of the last beluga nurseries on earth is located. The charity has since evolved into a larger focus - supporting any wildlife based research project in the Arctic that will help better understand the effects of climate change and support conservation efforts in the Arctic. Projects that have the potential to effect significant change over the next 10 years.
