NOAA Live! Alaska
Interactive webinar connecting NOAA Fisheries scientists and partners with Alaska students, teachers, and local communities.
Baby Beluga in the Shallow Gray Sea - Looking for Newborn Whales with Drones in Cook Inlet, Alaska
Kim Goetz, NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center
Learn about the endangered population of Cook Inlet beluga whales which regularly swim past local Anchorage landmarks such as the Port, Kincaid Park, the airport, and Bird Point in Turnagain Arm. We will talk about how belugas live, see cool photos of them taken from a drone that we use to recognize newborn baby whales, and listen to them buzz and chomp on a fish!
The webinar will also be live streamed on Facebook Live on the NOAA Fisheries Alaska Facebook page (@NOAAFisheriesAK).
