See Whales & Marine Debris on New Mapping Site
We've been working with Shane Bradt at UNH Cooperative Extension to develop a mapping web site that shows sightings of some of our favorite local whales, along with the sightings of floating litter we've collected over the years. The idea is to show that (obviously) whales and marine debris overlap, and provide a glimpse of what whales have to deal with as they cruise through our waters in the Gulf of Maine.
The site's at its initial stages, and we're looking for feedback! Is it easy to use? Is it useful to you - how? We're particularly hoping to make this useful to marine educators, although we also hope it'll be helpful to those who just want to explore where whales have been during the summer months. Let us know what you think by sending an email to jen (at) blueoceansociety.org or commenting here!
