Whales in the City
April 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5
The Eastern North Pacific right whale is the most critically endangered large whale in the world. Right whales in the eastern North Pacific once numbered in the tens of thousands, and were distributed throughout the
Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska. However, after becoming the target of extensive whaling, its population now numbers in the tens of animals. Unfortunately, there is still so much about this species that we do not know, including the location of their breeding grounds or migration routes. Jessica Crance will share about current research being done and the challenges and rewards of studying such a rare whale.
