Membership is what builds a strong society and is a vital part of our SIMRES organization. By becoming a member of the Saturna Island Marine Research and Education Society you will be showing your support of the work we are doing to share exciting new information about our marine environment. We are exploring the wonders of the Salish Sea and through our research partnerships are coming up with a better understanding of how we can protect our threatened whale populations and other creatures of the deep.

Being a member of SIMRES will allow you to ask questions and vote at our annual general meeting. After our events we will provide you with the opportunity to meet with other members of the society, our Directors or any other special guests. As a member you will also receive emails about upcoming events as well as access to a password protected members only site which will include real time underwater sounds and images from our hydrophone monitoring array.
