COSEE-West and the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium present this FREE public lecture: Tagging of Pacific Predators, by Autumn-Lynn Harrison, UC Santa Cruz.

Tagging of Pacific Predators (TOPP) began in 2000 as one of 17 projects of the Census of Marine Life, an ambitious 10-year, 80-nation endeavor to assess and explain the diversity and abundance of life in the oceans, and where that life has lived, is living, and will live. TOPP researchers have ventured into offshore waters, remote islands, and along rugged coastlines to attach satellite tags to 22 different species of top predators that roam the Pacific Ocean, including elephant seals, white sharks, leatherback turtles, squid, albatross and sooty shearwaters. Come learn about the TOPP mission and data resources, and find out why this data is important. This lecture will link teachers who are participating in our week-long Ocean Observing System workshop with TOPP data and strategies for incorporating the data into their classrooms.

There is no charge for this lecture. Bring your parking ticket to the lecture for validation. Professional Development hours may be documented.
