SEATalk with Edward Lyman

Edward Lyman, the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary’s Large Whale Entanglement Response Coordinator, has helped disentangle more than 100 whales and other marine animals over the past 23 years. Ed will describe the difficult and sometimes dangerous task of disentangling 40-ton, likely free-swimming, whales from life-threatening entanglements using techniques modified from those used to catch large fish, or used historically by whalers to kill the animals. Case histories of some of the animals that have been freed in Hawaii by an authorized network of responders will be shown using some amazing video footage from pole and helmet-mounted cameras. Over the years, more than 20 large whales have been entirely or partially freed of entangling gear in Hawaii. The effort is coordinated by the Sanctuary, working under NOAA Fisheries’ Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Program, and includes sanctuary partners and the on-water community. Successful disentanglements occur when a community-based network works closely with experienced responders to free the animals. This close coordination helps gain valuable information that might mitigate the threat and its broad impacts in the future.

This event is FREE and open to the public! Seating is limited, call (808) 270-7075 or email info@mauioceancenter.com to reserve your spot.
