Marine Animal Response & Necropsy Webinar and Q&AEvery year, more than 1,000 marine animal incidents are reported in Canada. Sean and Tonya will discuss the importance of responding to marine animal emergencies, and the essential conservation role you and other Canadians can play by reporting incidents. Sadly, some of these incidents have tragic endings. When a marine animal dies, a necropsy (or autopsy) can help us better understand and conserve marine wildlife. Tonya will share her experience participating in North Atlantic Right Whale necropsies, and we’ll discuss ways we can work together to conserve this important and critically endangered species.

Saving North Atlantic Right WhalesJoin the Ocean Tracking Network (OTN) and the Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) on World Oceans Day for a talk on the North Atlantic right whale—one of the most endangered whales in the world—that relies on the plankton-rich waters of the Maritimes, and faces dire threats from ship strikes, fishing entanglements and climate-driven changes in food sources and habitat. Historically found throughout the Atlantic Ocean, today North Atlantic right whales overwinter and calve in the south between Georgia and Northern Florida, and move north to Canada to feed in the plankton-rich waters of the Bay of Fundy, off the Scotian Shelf, and in the Gulf of St. Lawrence in the summer. After centuries of whaling, populations of some whale species have rebounded, but entanglements and ship strikes remain a serious problem for the conservation of large baleen whales, including for North Atlantic right whales. Due to human-induced stressors as well as lower calving rates since 2010, experts predict that right whales could become extinct in as little as 20 years. Tune in to learn more from Canadian Wildlife Federation’s right whale expert Sean Brillant about how we can work together to ensure a future for this iconic and critically endangered species.
