Easel 34: ENVS Capstone: Incorporating conservation units as a way to better manage short-finned pilot whales

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The goal of this project is to synthesize a recommendation, through a literature review of studies done both in the northwest Atlantic and around the globe, for either 1) conservation units for the North Atlantic short-finned pilot whales, or 2) additional information that is still needed to be completed before these delineations can be made. The study aims to address an important question identified in cetacean research and seeks to anticipate problems that could arise as global warming becomes more and more prevalent. The study will examine short-finned pilot whale habitat, population genetics, threats, and policy to determine what recommendations can be made for management purposes and in what areas further research can be done.
