Amazon Virtual Field Trips - August 2021

Web Seminar

Join us on Thursday, December 2, 2021, from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM ET to learn about false killer whales in the Hawaiian Islands and NOAA's efforts in helping to protect and recover their population.

False killer whales live throughout the world, but the ones found in the Hawaiian Archipelago are some of the most-studied—and rarest—marine animals. In this Science Update, learn about this species in general and get to know the main Hawaiian Islands insular false killer whale—an island-associated population that is genetically, behaviorally, ecologically, and culturally unique—and why they are endangered. This presentation will also introduce activities and resources to support classroom explorations, including how to be a community scientist and identify this species, how to report sightings and upload dorsal fin photos, and what you can do to help protect them.
