The Center for Coastal Studies is hosting the Chase-Miller Policy Forum Lecture on Friday, October 25 from 4 - 6 pm.
Keynote Speaker Leila Hatch, PhD, presents “Can you hear me here? Understanding and protecting underwater soundscapes in US National Marine Sanctuaries.”
Dr. Hatch is a marine ecologist working for the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and based at Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, a marine protected area managed by NOAA off the coast of Massachusetts. Dr. Hatch studies the ways that animals use sound underwater, and the impacts of noise produced by human activities on marine environments.
The Chase-Miller Policy Forum is a series of free lectures and discussions designed to educate the public on the role of science in public policy as it relates to the marine environment. This forum was made possible by the generous support of Linda B. Miller, PhD, a long-time patron and member of the CCS Board of Directors.
The lecture will be followed by the presentation and celebration of the 2019 Hiebert Memorial Fellowship, awarded annually to women who are pursuing degrees and careers in marine science.
Free, but a donation of $10 per person is appreciated.
