The 1970s saw the launch of the “Save the Whales” slogan as conservation groups began pushing for the end of global whaling. Yet, as large scale whaling subsided, other man made threats including entanglements in fishing gear, ship strikes, pollution, captivity and habitat degradation increased.
“Save the Whales”? The more accurate statement is, “Whales save us!”
Fast forward to 2017 where “Save the Whales” is no longer just a slogan but a global necessity as a growing body of research shows that the human race and planet earth are inextricably linked to the health of whale populations.
Join us Thursday, May 11 at 7:00 PM at the Jones River Landing (55 Landing Road, Kingston, MA 02364) to hear Regina Asmutis-Silvia, Executive Director at Whale and Dolphin Conservation in Plymouth, discuss the ecological whale model and the latest research supporting this principle.
The event is free of charge. Light refreshments will be provided.
