The New England Coastal Wildlife Alliance (NECWA), a non-profit organization based in southeastern MA that supports a number of projects and activities related to marine wildlife education, research and conservation, invites you on a Seabird & Whale Tales (SAWT) excursion scheduled for Sunday, September 13th from 8 am – 4 pm. The destination is the waters of Cape Cod Bay and Massachusetts Bay, including the waters of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. Here participants will view seabirds, whales, dolphins, seals, basking sharks and ocean sunfish that come to feed off our cold yet productive New England shores.
Guided wildlife commentary will be given by Wayne Petersen from Mass Audubon Society, David Clapp from Natural History Services, Joanne Jarzobski from Captain John Boats and Dr. John Jahoda from Bridgewater State College. The trip leaves from the Plymouth Town Pier at 8 am and returns by 4 pm. While offshore, participants will conduct a plankton tow and observe the sample under microscopes, and will also chum for seabirds.
Tickets: Pre-Sale $90 and then $100 after August 31st, 2009.
