The Oregon Chapter of the American Cetacean Society is presenting a program on September 8, 2012 at 1:00 PM at the Newport Public Library, 35 NW Nye, Newport. The program is free and open to everyone.
Our Ocean, a campaign to protect Oregon’s coastal legacy will be giving a presentation about Oregon’s Marine Reserves and the Territorial Sea Plan. We will also have a special guest, Bill Hunt, a former field biologist now doing educational art. He will share an anatomically correct Orca sculpture as well as a few other cetacean pieces he has created.
The American Cetacean Society protects whales, dolphins, porpoises, and their habitats through public education, research grants and conservation actions. The non-profit society was founded in 1967 and is headquartered in San Pedro, CA. Information on the ACS can be found on the website: ACSonline.org
