Center for Coastal Studies to Kickoff Winter Lecture Series

Whale off Provincetown 5PROVINCETOWN – The Center for Coastal Studies in Provincetown is kicking off its 2016 Winter Lecture Series this month.

The free lectures are held monthly at Napi’s Restaurant on Freeman Street in Provincetown.

The first lecture, “The Global Whale Entanglement Response Network: Increasing capacity around the world,” will be given on Wednesday, January 27 at 7 p.m.

The greatest known threat to whales is entanglement in manmade materials and it is possible that more whales die globally from this than all other human activities combined.

The Global Whale Entanglement Response Network is a new initiative to mitigate human impacts to whales and builds on the existing partnership between the Center for Coastal Studies and the International Whaling Commission to provide a worldwide network of entanglement responders.

David Mattila is the director of the GWERN and he will explain how the program will grow through training workshops, apprenticeships and the establishment of advanced training guidelines.
