A Dive into the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument at Harvard Museum of Natural History

Thursday, April 19, 2018 6:00pm

The Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument, located just 150 miles off the coast of Cape Cod,
 is home to endangered whales, 1,000-year-old deep-sea
coral communities, and a plethora of fish and seabird species. Designated on September 15, 2016, by President Barack Obama, this is New England’s only marine monument and the only marine national monument in the U.S. Atlantic Ocean. Scott Kraus will provide a tour of this biologically rich area and discuss its scientific and ecological importance, while also highlighting what needs to be done to ensure its continued protection.
