Join the New England Coastal Wildlife Alliance (NECWA) and special guest naturalists 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 our guest naturalists onboard including: Wayne Petersen (Mass Audubon), Jim Sweeney (South Shore Bird Club), Thomas Robben (Hartford Audubon Society), Jay Frontierro (7 Seas Whale Watch), Peter Flood (NECWA), Dr. Adrian Jordaan (UMASS Amherst), as well as NECWA staff.
We head offshore to view and collect data on seabirds, whales, dolphins, seals, sharks, and other marine animals. If weather allows, we chum for seabirds, and incorporate a number of environmental sampling stations into our agenda for the day. This data is shared with other researches in the New England area to support their research and management efforts. NECWA will also provide our free nature-themed raffle to thank passengers for joining us.
