10:00 a.m. Sunday, May 28, 2023

Scott Landry has been working at the Center for Coastal Studies for over 20 years on whale research and conservation. He will discuss our current understanding of how entanglement in fishing gear impacts individual whales and whale populations. This Sunday, he’ll be talking about Spinnaker, to illustrate how larger trends are manifest in the life of a single, and singular, being. All are welcome!
