Frontline Whale Rescue: Detangling Their Threat

Entanglement in fishing gear is a well-documented source of human impact on baleen whales. The Center for Coastal Studies has been on the front line of whale disentanglement response since 1984, releasing more than 200 whales from life-threatening entanglements. Head to the brewery on Wednesday, June 21st at 6:30pm, to hear from a member of the Center for Coastal Studies, Paulette Durazo, who's on the frontlines of whale rescue. Paulette's presentation will cover the scope of whale entanglements, the history of the Marine Animal Entanglement Response team, and guide you through the steps of how to detect, document and report a live entangled large whale or sea turtle.

Speaker Bios:

Paulette Durazo is originally from Baja California, Mexico. She has a bachelor's and master’s degree in Coastal Oceanography with 10 years of experience working with marine mammals. She spent most of her time in Mexico working along the Baja Peninsula in research projects involving seals, sea lions, gray whales, and humpback whales. Paulette engaged with the public giving talks about marine mammal conservation while working as a whale-watching guide in Cabo San Lucas and San Ignacio Lagoon. For the last 4 years, she has been working for the Center for Coastal Studies as a research assistant with the Humpback Whale Research Program and as a rescue assistant for the Marine Animal Entanglement Response team.
