A Tour of New Hampshire's Seacoast Science Center
Sea Coast Science Center New Hampshire
On this episode of Shaped By The Sea, Brian Yurasits dials-in to catch up with Kate Leavitt and Ashley Stokes over at the Seacoast Science Center in Rye, New Hampshire. Kate is the Director of Mission at the center, and has been spending the past 6 weeks working on a major transition. How do you transform a learning center that provides inquiry-based experiences with local marine life, into an online resource that reaches families in their own backyards? Sticking with the theme of adapting during a pandemic, Brian and Ashley spend the second half of today's show discussing how a marine mammal rescue team can continue providing much-needed care for protected wildlife in the face of beach closures and volunteer limitations. Will seals thrive on New England's newly-uncrowded coastline, or is a bigger problem brewing? Learn more about the Seacoast Science Center's Your Learning Connection, and Marine Mammal Rescue Program.
