Exploratorium Lab & Lunch | Pier 15
Hundreds of whales—the world’s largest mammals—travel along the California coast each year, as do thousands of gigantic cargo ships. So perhaps it’s not surprising that multiple whales are killed each year in collisions with ships.
Join Jaime Jahncke from Point Blue Conservation Science to hear what we know about where whales go, and how we can prevent ships and whales from colliding. Plus, learn how you can help by reporting whale sightings with a smartphone app.
Jaime Jahncke, PhD, is a marine ecologist and Director of the California Current Group at Point Blue Conservation Science. Point Blue collaborates with NOAA’s National Marine Sanctuaries program to identify whale hotspots and to find ways to protect them.
