Whales in an Urban Ocean: Lessons on Coexistence (Portland, Apr 9)
Join us in welcoming Dr. Scott Kraus, VP of Research at New England Aquarium and Census of Marine Life scientist on Thursday, April 9 at 2 pm and 7 pm at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute.
Using North Atlantic Right Whales as a model, Dr. Kraus and others have examined the effects of oceanic urbanization on whales. Although challenging, recent advances in both science and management show it is possible to manage ourselves in ways that will support both human activities and whales.
