4-5:30 Family Friendly talk on the whales off our coast by the Center for Coastal Studies
The Center for Coastal Studies is an independent non-profit research, education and rescue organization founded in 1976. Since 1984, the Center has been the worldwide leaders of marine animal disentanglement, techniques that are now commonplace around the world. Marine Eduation Director Jesse Mechling presents Spinnaker: An Entanglement Story about the newest exhibit at the Center, a thirty-four foot humpback whale skeleton. The story of Spinnaker is partially the story of the Center itself, detailing the science and research that has gone into one of the longest population studies of whales in the world. The story also speaks of the enormous threats whales still face today.
