{Talk} "Changing (Shipping) Lanes for the North Atlantic Right Whale"

Cape Cod Today

Saturday, February 25, 2012 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

The North Atlantic Right Whale (Eubalaena glacialis), the most endangered whale in the world, inhabits the waters off Cape Cod, mostly during spring and summer. The same waters are a super-highway for mega cargo ships. Join David Wiley, PhD, Research Coordinator for the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, NOAA, as he discusses his research that led to the shifting of shipping lanes into the port of Boston. Dr. Wiley coordinated the international effort to reduce the risks of ship strikes to endangered whales north of Cape Cod.
