About this event
Marine megafauna, such as baleen whales, can now be detected using very high resolution satellite imagery. To explore the potential applications of this exciting technology in the Northeast Pacific, with a particular focus on the Pacific coast of Canada, we are hosting a webinar that will set the stage for future collaborations to detect, monitor, and forecast megafauna using space-based data and advanced analysis methods.
Are you a member of a research group working on a VHR satellite megafauna detection project?
Are you a researcher or decision-maker looking to apply novel technologies to advance marine management?
Are you interested in collaborating or partnering on pilot projects on VHR satellite megafauna detection in the Northeast Pacific?
We invite you to join DFO’s Species At Risk program, and the Tula Foundation’s Ocean Decade Collaborative Center for the Northeast Pacific to learn about the possibilities of using space-based observations and other data to monitor and protect marine megafauna and help inform the development of future projects and applications in the Northeast Pacific Region, from species at risk recovery, to marine protected area network monitoring, to oil spill response.
This webinar is endorsed as an Activity of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
