The American Cetacean Society engages in educational, conservational, and scientific pursuits for the purpose of expanding scientific knowledge of whales, dolphins, porpoises, and related creatures. Services offered by the Monterey Bay Chapter include monthly meetings open to the public, featuring presentations about whales, dolphins and related aspects of the marine environment.

October – The October 27 meeting topic is The California Coastal National Monument: Past, Present, and Future, presented by Bill Stanley, Natural Resource Specialist for the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) California Coastal National Monument. Learn more.

Next Month: December 1 – Our November and December meetings are combined because of the seasonal holidays, so our final program this year will be on Thursday, Dec. 1. Our speaker will be photographer Chris Hartzell.

We are very grateful to Laurie Huelga for designing and developing the remodeled ACS Monterey Bay website.
