Interactive webinar connecting NOAA Fisheries scientists and partners with students, teachers and local communities.
July 13, 2021 - Tag Along With Killer Whale Researchers as They Solve Scientific Mysteries
Tuesday, July 13, 2021 - 10 am Pacific time/ 9 am Alaska time
Dawn Noren and Marla Holt, NOAA Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, WA
How do we study endangered Southern Resident killer whales? Join us to find out how NOAA scientists use creative techniques and tools to study effects of disturbance, health, foraging behavior and acoustics of Southern Resident killer whales who spend most of their lives underwater.
The webinar will last about 60 minutes with moderated questions and answers throughout. This webinar will be recorded and posted afterward with English captions and Spanish subtitles. (Grades 6-8 but all ages will enjoy).
NOAA Science Camp is hosting two weeks with interactive webinars, aimed at students in grades 6–8 (but of interest to all ages!). We feature NOAA scientists, educators, and partners to explore NOAA’s work on climate change and marine mammals. 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!
The 2021 NOAA Science Camp is coordinated by NOAA's Alaska Fisheries Science Center, NOAA's Northwest Fisheries Science Center, and Washington Sea Grant. The webinars are 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.
