June 7 (Wed) 7:00pm Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary

Event Date: 
Wednesday, June 7, 2017 - 7:00pm

The California coast is home to 25 million people, many of whom spend time in, around, and/or above the water. Such high levels of traffic can put pressure on our coastal wildlife, including recovering seabird and marine mammal populations, who also call our coast home. Among the challenges facing coastal wildlife are low-overflights by fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. This seminar will introduce you to coastal wildlife, illuminate how and why low overflights can be problematic for seabird and marine mammal conservation, and ultimately focus on the location of NOAA Regulated Overflight Zones and the reasons we have them. Please bring your sectionals. Hope to see you there!

Join Sean Denny who is an Outreach Specialist for the Seabird Protection Network, a program of Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. He has a Master’s in Conservation Science from Imperial College London and experience working on conservation issues in both the United States and abroad.
