South Florida Museum: A Conservation Conversation with Dr. James "Buddy" Powell

Friday, April 10 at 7 pm – A Conservation Conversation with Dr. James "Buddy" Powell, Executive Director of the Sea to Shore Alliance.
The North Atlantic right whale, the most endangered whale in U.S. waters, journeys south during winter to calve off Georgia and Florida from December through March. The area designated as critical habitat for them during this journey includes four major shipping ports, creating a high level of risk for ship/whale conflicts every day. Dr. Powell will offer insight into the conservation challenges and solutions developed to reduce the likelihood of interactions and help conserve the species. This special program is being offered to highlight the exhibition Ocean Soul, currently presented in the South Florida Museum's East Gallery through June 7, showcasing the work of National Geographic underwater photographer Brian Skerry.
$3 Museum Members, $5 Non-members. Paid reservations required; RSVP online or call 941-746-4131, ext. 13.
