Cold Stun Lecture/Beach Monitoring

AMSEAS scientists will guide participants on an interactive, educational walk on the beach. Participants will be taught about the 4 species of sea turtles that utilize our waters seasonally and how human interaction threatens their lives during their time in our waters.

We will discuss the seasonal occurrence “cold stunning,” or hypothermia in sea turtles, and what the community can do to help as we work to protect these threatened and endangered species. Following the lecture we will walk the beach to learn how to monitor the beaches for hypothermic sea turtles, and remove harmful marine debris along the way. Participants will be encouraged to practice what they’ve learned by continuing to monitor their local beach throughout the fall and winter “cold stun season.”

Keeping Plastics Out of Water

Plastic pollution is a growing threat to our waterways globally and to our marine life locally. An estimated 267 species of marine and avian life are impacted by our addiction to throw-away plastics, including whales, turtles, seals, and dolphins that populate the Long Island Sound and surrounding NY waters.

What we can we do to protect marine life and keep plastics out of Long Island Sound?

Join us for a free educational forum to hear leading experts in the field discuss impacts of plastic pollution on our wildlife, water, and communities. Find out how you can get involved in the fight against plastic pollution.
