Shoreline Education for Awareness



Tufted Puffin 2

You are invited to join the SEA Board and current members for our 28thAnnual Meeting.

We have had a fabulous year since last October. Join us on the 27thto hear all about it. We will present plans for the coming year which include new partnerships and new commitments. The meeting will end with the election of new board members.

 You will have the opportunity to hear about the fascinating research being done by OSU’s Geospatial Ecology of Marine Megafauna Lab focusing on gray whales in Port Orford this past summer. We think you will enjoy it.

 Keynote Speaker: Lisa Hildebrand, OSU Wildlife Science Master Student, and some of her research team will present what they discovered this summer about gray whales at Port Orford.

What does SEA do?

SEA provides trained wildlife interpreters to visitors, schools and civic groups in meeting its primary mission of education regarding shoreline habitats and the wildlife along the southern Oregon coast. SEA had about 13,000 visitor contacts at Face Rock/Coquille Point and Simpson Reef during the 2018 summer season. We provide powerful spotting scopes to enable close up viewing of the nesting seabirds and hauled out pinnipeds from the points on which we set up every weekend throughout the summer months.
