The Canada-US Fulbright Annual Lecture
7:00 PM, March 3, 2010
Walker Ames Room (Room 225), Kane Hall
University of Washington, Seattle
Followed by a reception
Marine mammals are highly mobile, migratory animals with home ranges that span political boundaries. Canada and the US have enacted legislation to manage and conserve whales and their populations. These laws share common objectives, but often differ in the way in which they achieve those objectives.
Dr. Rob Williams, 2009-10 Canada-US Fulbright Visiting Research Chair, will discuss his research on two transboundary issues in marine conservation: evaluating the effects of ocean noise on whales; and estimating the amount of salmon required to support resident killer whale populations.
