Please Join SF Bay ACS for Kathi Koontz: “Whale Disentanglement in Northern California ”

Tuesday, Feb 25 7:00p to 9:00p
Bay Model Visitor Center Sausalito, CA

One of the greatest threats to whales is entanglement in fishing gear and marine debris. The Whale Entanglement Team (WET) disentangles whales and conducts public outreach. Kathi Koontz, from WET, will discuss entanglements in Northern California and how you can get involved.  She, and Pieter Folkens, will walk you through the disentanglement process of removing a tight wrap/line(s) on a free-swimming, and anchored, 50 foot, 50 ton whale - from a 14-18 foot inflatable boat.  Does size matter?
