Soon our intrepid time voyagers can explore the many mysteries of the oceans, as we develop a series of learning environments based on our protected National Marine Sanctuaries. Beginning with Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary home to the critically endangered North Atlantic Right Whale, our marine biology apprentices will dive with the Right Whales and learn of the state-of-the art underwater echo-location systems and Whale Alert App.
These advanced technologies are designed to protect the few Right Whales left from lethal encounters with giant cargo ships plying the waters off Massachusetts within Stellwagen Sanctuary waters. This is a prime example of conservation organizations and businesses working together to protect endangered species and commerce for future generations.
