A Dive into the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument

The Harvard Museum of Natural History and the Conservation Law Society welcome Scott Kraus, Vice President, Senior Adviser, and Chief Scientist of Marine Mammals, Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life at the New England Aquarium, who 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.

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.
