Join us for a day of learning about and viewing marine mammals! You can participate in the morning seminar, the afternoon training, or both.
Dr. Sarah Allen will start the day with a classroom seminar on marine mammals. This classroom seminar will cover topics relevant to California’s marine mammals (harbor seals, sea lions, elephant seals, and gray whales). Dr. Sarah Allen’s research has brought her as far as Antarctica, but most of her career has been as a science advisor to the National Park Service. She has authored and co-authored many publications, including a UC Press Field Guide on Marine Mammals of the Pacific. Currently, she is the Science Program Lead for the Pacific West Region and and Research Coordinator for the Californian Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit. Sarah is passionate about using science to inform the public and guide land management decisions. Her impressive work has been instrumental in addressing important resource issues as land and seascape-level concerns about our changing environment continue to emerge.
