Marine Mammal Research in Malaysia & Vietnam with Ellen Hines

Marine Mammal Research in Malaysia & Vietnam with Ellen Hines

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

Join us for an enthralling evening with scientist, Dr. Ellen Hines, as she reports on her fascinating Fulbright Fellowship work doing surveys off the coastline of Malaysia and measuring bones in Vietnamese whale temples!

Dr. Ellen Hines, the Associate Director of the Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies, is also a Professor in Geography at San Francisco State University. Her research addresses population and community ecology of threatened and endangered species in local conservation efforts and regional scale coastal and marine management science. Her emphasis is on the evolution of consistent standards of field methods and monitoring techniques, and the creation of educational materials that can be applied to community-based conservation planning.

Dr. Hines has extensive experience in GIS and remote sensing for marine and coastal spatial planning. She has conducted marine mammal research in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar and Belize since 1999. Dr. Hines has been researching dugongs and coastal dolphins and porpoises along the eastern Gulf of Thailand since 2003. She is committed to collaborating with developing country scientists to solve conservation problems threatening marine mammals.

Here in California, Dr. Hines works closely with Point Blue Conservation Science and the National Marine Sanctuaries outside San Francisco Bay to model habitat and human uses for marine mammals and seabirds. With her students, she works to create risk assessments for anthropogenic threats such as shipping collisions, by-catch, and the effects of sea level rise on pinnipeds in coastal estuaries.
