Canadian Conservation Corps members Eveline and Elizabeth founded this initiative to bring a new way for people to engage in conservation. They chose the North Atlantic right whale because the issues they face are dire and conservation outreach surrounding the issue tends to be very graphic and leave the viewer emotionally exhausted before they can even learn about or engage in the solutions to the issue.
They thought: if we could skip straight to getting people involved by creating a life-size version of a baby calf so people can interact with this animal while also directly helping them by removing some potential entanglement and plastic debris.
