Join the New England Coastal Wildlife Alliance (NECWA.org) for an all day adventure to support marine wildlife education, research, and conservation. This excursion is a fundraising event for NECWA, an all-volunteer nonprofit based in southeastern MA.
Enjoy commentary from wildlife experts Wayne Petersen (Mass Audubon), Jim Sweeney (South Shore Bird Club), David Clapp (Natural History Services), Thomas Robben (Hartford Audubon Society), Adrian Jordaan (Department of Environmental Conservation, UMASS Amherst), and Jay Frontierro (Captain and Naturalist 7 Seas Whale Watch). NECWA naturalists include Tammy Silva, Michael O'Neill, Courtney Callahan, and Krill Carson.
We head offshore to view and record seabirds, whales, seals, basking sharks, ocean sunfish, and other marine wildlife seen in the waters off Cape Cod. If weather allows, we will chum for seabirds and incorporate a number of environmental sampling stations into our agenda for the day. Data collected offshore will be shared with other researches in the New England area to support their research and management activities. During the trip, NECWA will provide a free nature-themed raffle to thank passengers for joining us.
