Napi’s Lecture Series: Entanglements, Disentanglements and Mola Molas of 2017
November 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Center for Coastal Studies presents “The Year in Review: Entanglements, Disentanglements and Mola Molas of 2017” by Maria Harvey.
As the Center’s Marine Animal Entanglement Response (MAER) team prepares to wrap up another year on stand-by and on the water, new MAER crew member Maria Harvey shares the ups, downs and round-abouts of disentangling whales, sea turtles and other marine animals.
Maria graduated from University of Hawaii in 2009 with a Bachelor degree in Marine Science. Her love for the ocean, education, and research has taken her all over the Pacific in recent years, notably Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, and Mexico.
During her travels, Maria has worked as a Captain, naturalist, wilderness expedition leader, and assistant marine mammal researcher. Her work and studies have encompassed a variety of species, including spinner dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, humpback whales, and whale sharks.
Maria joined the CCS MAER team in July 2017.
This free presentation is part of the Center for Coastal Studies’ Winter Lecture Series, which is supported by Napi’s Restaurant at 7 Freeman Street in Provincetown. Participants are encouraged to arrive at 5 pm and enjoy Napi’s special early bird dinner.
