{education} The First Right Whale Sign is Up!!!

Asst. Harbormaster Jill Buckley installs the new right whale sign in Scituate!

This has been a long time coming, and the first right whale sign is now up thanks to our partners at Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, David Wiley and Michael Thompson, and to Jill Buckley, Assistant Harbormaster in the town of Scituate.  This collaboration has brought together so many folks concerned about right whale conservation and we are hopeful that the project will raise awareness about these endangered whales that share our coast.  The graphic design of the sign by Allison Rosner at GARFO came out great, and that amazing right whale drawing is courtesy of Scott Landry from the Center for Coastal Studies.
