2014 Florida Volunteer Updates

As the North Atlantic right whales migrate to the South Georgia/Northern Florida coast each winter volunteers help watch for and capture critical details related to this endangered species. This information helps scientists track the fate of the species and acts as a first alert system to pilots in the shipping lanes to avoid accidental killings. This blog shares the findings, photos and other pertinent information gathered from the Palm Coast Sector Volunteer Team while helping to connect and communicate the many ways we can protect the right whales and sustain our wonderful ocean life.

Please join Jesse Mechling, PCCS education director, for the thrill of right whale spotting from Herring Cove Beach.

Cape Cod Bay is alive with right whales this April, with large numbers of sightings from PCCS researchers in its Right Whale Aerial Survey Program. But you don't need to get in an airplane to see these ancient and awesome creatures. You can see them right from the beach!
Meet at Herring Cove parking lot (right side) for the beginning of each walk.  If you have questions, please e-mail or call Jesse (508-487-3623, ext. 103).

Newcomers to PCCS receive a complimentary one-year membership! Contact 
Jan Young(508-487-3622, ext. 104) before or after your walk to register for membership.

And stay tuned for an invitation to our Full Moon Dune Hike, coming up at the end of the month!
