It’s time for another First Friday Facebook Live.

This time Taylor and Nick are joined by Whale Watch naturalist Lorna Blocksma to talk whales—which whale species and other marine animals you can see in this area, the benefits of whale poop to the ecosystem, the hazards faced by whales in their environment, and other whale topics.

With Boston Harbor (and its noise) as a backdrop, our educators and guest also described some of the projects we are working on here at the Aquarium to help protect critically endangered North Atlantic right whales.
