THIS WEBINAR HAS CONCLUDED. THE FULL ARCHIVE AND RESOURCES WILL BE AVAILABLE TO YOU AT ANY TIME.
Join WCS expert, Dr. Howard Rosenbaum, for a live conversation about whales and their migration through New York City waterways, followed by a presentation from educator Kathryn Atkins on how to bring this science into your classroom.
Whales are returning to New York City waterways and with them comes a new set of conservation challenges. In 2014 there were over 100 humpback whale sightings along the NYC coastline; a dramatic increase from previous years. What has brought back these ocean giants? Scientists aren't quite sure. Perhaps it's due to cleaner waters, changes in climate, or an increased food supply.
WCS is partnering with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to learn how many whales really inhabit these waters. Howard and his team's search for whales in the New York Seascape will allow us to learn more about the city below the sea while supporting Blue York, a WCS Campaign.
