The North Atlantic right whale, the most endangered whale in U.S. waters, journeys south during winter to calve off Georgia and Florida from December through March. The area designated as critical habitat for them during this journey includes four major shipping ports, creating a high level of risk for ship/whale conflicts every day. Dr. Powell will offer insight into the conservation challenges and solutions developed to reduce the likelihood of interactions and help conserve the species.
This special program is being offered to highlight the exhibition Ocean Soul, currently presented in the South Florida Museum's East Gallery, which showcases the work of National Geographic underwater photographer Brian Skerry. The exhibition features images of the ocean environment and follows four key creatures whose gripping stories illustrate the health of the world's oceans: sharks, right whales, leatherback turtles and harp seals. Creating an additional tie, Brian Skerry serves on the Board of Directors of Sea to Shore Alliance. Ocean Soul will be presented through June 7.
Sea to Shore Alliance, through research, education, and conservation, works to improve the health and productivity of coastal environments for the endangered species and human livelihoods that depend on them.
