NOAA Live! Alaska: Cook Inlet Beluga Tales
Interactive webinar connecting NOAA Fisheries scientists and partners with Alaska students, teachers and local communities.
September 10, 2021 - Cook Inlet Beluga Tales
Friday, September 10, 2021 - 1:00 pm Alaska time
Jill Seymour, NOAA Fisheries Alaska Regional Office in Anchorage, AK, and Paul Wade, NOAA Fisheries Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, WA
Join us to learn about endangered Cook Inlet beluga whales. Find out how you can help NOAA scientists and partners look for Cook Inlet belugas around the inlet, on your own or through programs like the Alaska Beluga Monitoring Partnership, and how beluga sightings from the public can help with the recovery of the population. We'll also look at how new technology can help us learn about a beluga's age and relatives.
The webinar will last about 60 minutes with moderated questions and answers throughout. This webinar will be recorded and posted afterward with captions. (Grades 2-8 but all ages will enjoy).
