Saving a Species from Extinction, Protecting the North Atlantic Right Whale

November 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST

Join the New Hampshire Audubon Seacoast Chapter for their in person November program.

With fewer than 350 whales remaining, the North Atlantic right whale is one of the rarest large whale species in the world. Once a heavily targeted commercial whaling species, right whales remain vulnerable to contemporary human activities, including vessel strikes and entanglement in fishing gear. Their recovery is also threatened by low reproduction, habitat loss, disease and environmental contaminants. For more than 40 years, the New England Aquarium has been in the forefront of right whale research and conservation efforts and our work has been integral to informing national and international efforts to protect these elusive giants. This program presented by Heather Pettis will share the history of this iconic species as well as the tremendous efforts underway to save them from extinction.

The Seacoast Chapter meets monthly on the second Wednesday except the months of July and August unless there is a special program. Refreshments are served at 7 pm and the meetings begin at 7:30 pm unless otherwise noted (entrance doors locked at 7:45 pm). The public is welcome free of charge. In person meetings are held at the Seacoast Science Center at Odiorne State Park, Route 1A, Rye, NH. Wheelchair accessible. For more information on chapter programs, please contact: Dan Hubbard, (603) 332-4093 or [email protected]
