Marine Mammals of the North Coast – What we are learning about Elephant Seals, Gray Whales and Stranded Marine Mammals
Dr. Goley and her students at HSU have been studying marine mammals in northern California for over 25 years. In this seminar, Dr. Goley will summarize what we have learned about living and stranded marine mammals through her collaborative work with students, colleagues, the BLM, KRNCA and local communities along the northern California coast. Please join us to hear more about her most recent research with the King Range elephant seals, gray whales and marine mammal strandings, plus how you can be involved in helping us understand our local marine mammals.
