Are Whales Recovering in Scotland? @ BEST - Business Enterprise Solutions & Training | Fort William | United Kingdom

Whale biologist Dr Conor Ryan has worked with several UK-based NGOs and universities, researching whales and ways to protect them. In this not to be missed webinar, he will consider historic whaling in Scotland and the modern day threats that whales now face here. He will discuss conservation efforts and the public’s role in collecting important data about whale migration routes. He will draw on his work in the Cape Verde humpback breeding grounds to discuss what threats our whales face when they migrate. He will consider why they come to our waters in the first place and how we can better protect them here. On the question of potential recovery, Conor argues that we need more data and a better understanding of current threats before we can be assured. There will be a question and answer section at the end. Tickets are £7.50 each and can be booked by clicking this link – whc.uhi.ac.uk/business/best-courses/#widget=course?course_code=WHNAAWRZ
