ReefTalk features whale entanglement update (April 12)

* 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 12, Thelma Parker Library, Waimea

Join Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale Sanctuary coordinator Justin Viezbicke as he details the Sanctuary’s 2011 Large Whale Entanglement Response program.

The presentation will provide video/photographs from actual responses as well as provide insight on how the responders actually safely remove gear from large free moving Humpback Whales here in Hawaii.

Interested in checking out results from whale counts volunteers have generated? URL for the sanctuary website is www.hawaiihumpbackwhale.noaa.gov
