“Large Whale Entanglement In Pacific NW Fishing Gear”
Doug Sandilands - Entanglement Response Specialist, Sealife Response Rehab & Research (SR3)
Entanglement is a leading cause of serious injury and mortality of many whale populations. This talk by Doug Sandilands with the Large Whale Response Network will review:
• Fishing gear entanglements;
• What the North Pacific Large Whale Entanglement Response Network is doing to address the problem; and
• How naturalists and the public can help as educators and first responders.
The talk will be at the Camano Island Public Library at Terry's Corner. Use the doors near the parking spaces NOT via the locked "main" library door around the corner (as this is held in the separate meeting room, and is after normal library hours).
