Last of the Right Whales: Documentary Screening and Panel Discussion

  • Date

    September 22

  • Time

    7:00 pm

  • Location

    Audubon Nature Center

North Atlantic right whales are dying faster than they can reproduce. With just over 330 remaining, these whales rarely die of natural causes. Instead, they are run over by ships or suffer lethal injuries from fishing gear. If we don’t act to protect them, in 20 years they could be extinct. Join Audubon Society of Rhode Island for a screening of the documentary, “Last of the Right Whales.” After the documentary there will be a panel discussion with members of the North Atlantic Right Whale Consortium, including: Robert Kenney, professor emeritus at University of Rhode Island; Capt. Thomas Fetherson, US Navy-retired; Regina Asmutis-Silva, executive director of Whale and Dolphin Conservation, and Anne DiMonti, director of Audubon Society of Rhode Island Nature Center and Aquarium. This program is free and open to public, but registration is required.
