TITLE: Lecture - Marine Conservation in the Pacific Northwest: Whales, Salmon, and Sound
DATE: Wednesday March 3, 2010
TIME: 7:00 PM
PRESENTER: Rob Williams, 2009-2010 Canada-US Fulbright Visiting Chair, University of British Columbia
Marine mammals are highly mobile, migratory animals with home ranges that span political boundaries. Canada and the US have enacted legislation to manage and conserve whales and their populations. These laws share common objectives, but often differ in the way in which they achieve those objectives.
Dr. Rob Williams, 2009-10 Canada-US Fulbright Visiting Research Chair, will discuss his research on two transboundary issues in marine conservation: evaluating the effects of ocean noise on whales; and estimating the amount of salmon required to support resident killer whale populations.
This lecture is the annual Canada-US Fulbright Lecture and is also part of the Global Focus lecture series.
