BBL - Tuesday, December 3 - North Atlantic right whale watching - how you can help

Julie Albert, Coordinator of the North Atlantic Right Whale Conservation Program at the Marine Resources Council, will teach how local citizens can protect these highly endangered whales that visit Florida annually.  She will discuss why they are so endangered, their life history, biology, threats, conservation status, and how to protect them.  Come find out what other whales inhabit our waters, how to tell them apart from right whales, and enjoy anecdotes about local heroes who have contributed crucial information to the national database on right whales.  Please join us to find out what you can do to help!

For more information, contact the Marine Resources Council at 321-725-7775 or visit our website at

Julie Albert graduated from Texas A&M University at Galveston, with a degree in Marine Biology in 1995.  This is her 15th season coordinating the North Atlantic Right Whale Program at MRC.  Prior to that, she volunteered for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission; hatched and raised king penguins; and worked in the aquaculture field before moving to Florida.
