Event Details

Come join the LA Lone Scouts as they work on several requirements over the course of 3-6 months for the BSA Fish & Wildlife Management Merit Badge - and the BSA World Conservation Award in 2019.

Wildlife management is the science and art of managing the wildlife—both animals and fish—with which we share our planet. Maintaining the proper balance and the dynamics that go with it requires humankind's attention. We use this stewardship tool to help minimize or eradicate the possibility of extinction of any given species. We want our descendants to have the opportunity to experience the same animal diversity that we now enjoy.

EVENT: MEET THE WHALES 

This is a High Adventure on Open Water (Pacific Ocean).

Due to warmer waters in May, we will have the opportunity to view blue whales to 80 feet, finback whales, huge pods of dolphin that number in the thousands, seals, killer whales, sharks, and many other marine creatures. This is a 2-3 hour cruise over open water on board the Legacy with a Marine Science Naturalist, trained by the American Cetacean Society.
