NOAA Live! Alaska: Lose the loop: How did entangled Steller sea lions lead to Alaska's first Ocean Guardian schools?
Interactive webinar connecting NOAA Fisheries scientists and partners with Alaska students, teachers and local communities.
February 23, 2021 - Lose the loop: How did entangled Steller sea lions lead to Alaska's first Ocean Guardian schools?
Kim Raum-Suryan, NOAA Fisheries' Alaska Region
Join us as we learn about how marine debris impacts Steller sea lions, how we disentangle Steller sea lions, and how this helped us bring NOAA’s Ocean Guardian School Program to Alaska. Explore more about the Ocean Guardian School Program, how you can get this program started in your school, and concrete steps you can take right now to reduce marine mammal entanglements and marine debris.
Webinar and Live Stream
(The webinar will also be live streamed via Facebook Live on the NOAA Fisheries Alaska Facebook page - @NOAAFisheriesAK.)
NOAA Live! Alaska is a weekly series of interactive webinars, aimed at Alaska students in grades 2–8 (but of interest to all ages!). We will feature NOAA scientists, educators, and partners to explore NOAA’s work in Alaska. Learn about current research. Connect to what’s going on in your communities. Join us to ask questions to our presenters and learn more about weather, oceanography, marine life, fisheries and more in Alaska!
NOAA Live! Alaska is coordinated by NOAA's Alaska Fisheries Science Center, NOAA's Alaska Regional Collaboration Network, and the National Weather Service. The series is modeled on the NOAA Live! webinars coordinated by Woods Hole Sea Grant and the NOAA Regional Collaboration Network. Contact Lisa.Hiruki-Raring@noaa.gov with any questions.
