World of Whales at Waterboro Public Library
July 7, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Whales play a vital role in the ocean ecosystem that helps to support all life on Earth. Join us at the Waterboro Public Library as we dive deep into the world of whales. We will start with a basic overview of what species have been spotted in the Gulf of Maine (the common and the uncommon). We will also investigate the adaptations that these large mammals have in order to survive in their ocean home. This program will also focus on cetacean stranding response here in Maine, and highlight a few of MMoME’s most fascinating cases. What challenges do these animals face, and what challenges does MMoME encounter when a report of a stranded cetacean comes through their hotline?
Open to all ages.
