Event Description

West Coast Large Whale Entanglement Response Program - MMHSRP Permit #18786-04

Join Save Our Shores for an exhilarating and robust discussion about whale entanglements in the Monterey Bay!

Save Our Shores will team up with expert panelists from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Marine Life Studies, and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary to discuss this important topic. Together we will dive into the work being done at the local, state, and federal level to protect the whales of the Monterey Bay, and meet some of the amazing people that work everyday with stakeholders around the region to reduce the number of whale entanglements and rescue those that have been entangled.

This event is being held as part of our Earth Day 50 Speaker Series, highlighting the importance of this pivotal year by discussing growing problems and groundbreaking solutions for our oceans and climate. Proceeds from this event will support the work of Save Our Shores and Marine Life Studies.
