An Introduction to the Biology and Ecology of Whales of the North Atlantic Ocean

Come join us at the Coastal Discovery Museum on December 18 at 2 p.m., as we hear from Associate Professor Michael Williamson will discuss different types of whales that inhabit the North Atlantic, their biology, and basic research techniques used to learn more about their natural history. Some hands-on specimens will be used.

Williamson founded WhaleNet in 1993 to excite students about match, science, the environment, and technology (STEM). He is also Vice-president of the Mingan Island Cetacean Study, which has conducted the longest continuous research program on blue whales in the world, since 1979.
