Whales in Your Backyard – A Live-streamed Presentation


How do technologies like the SnotBot, WhaleSpotter and listening buoys help us protect whales? Find out from marine scientist Lindsay Hirt in her upcoming live-streamed presentation on January 12th: Whales in Your Backyard: How Learning the Secrets of the Great Whales Helps Us to Protect Them (and Our Oceans).

Tune in at 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. EST on your own computer to hear Hirt explain why the whales in Massachusetts Bay are endangered, how these groundbreaking technologies shed light on the secret lives of whales, and where that information can be applied in developing tools to conserve these giants of the sea.

Hirt appeals to audiences of all ages and expertise with her  clear, non-technical language and stories from her own and her colleagues’ research adventures. Her passion for our huge and majestic oceanic neighbors is contagious, and she will inspire you to do all you can to protect whales, too.
