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!
ABOUT ELLEN HINES
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.
