Ecology and Conservation of the Gulf of the Farallones

Date/Time

May 16, 2019
06:30 PM until 08:30 PM

Description

The Gulf of the Farallones lies within an "Eastern Boundary Current System," one of five such current systems around the world, where cold ocean currents and other environmental factors lead to high ocean productivity; an estimated 85-95% of the world's seafood originates from these five systems. Peter's talk will cover the ecology and conservation of the Gulf's marine vertebrates, from birds to pinnipeds to cetaceans, with emphasis on his main research species, breeding and pelagic seabirds, and great white sharks. We will learn about the keystone species, excellent research undertaken, and the conservation and management actions that have resulted.
