Humpback whale

On January 16, 2010 this juvenile humpback whale was seen at Cape Lookout. Keith sent Ryan’s photo to Jooke Robbins with the Center for Coastal Studies in Provincetown, MA and she immediately matched it as a whale they had IDed in the Gulf of Maine.



Monofilament We weighted and sent off 38 pounds of monofilament for recycling. We received a “Fish-Hab” (pictured above) from Berkley Conservation Institute which is made from recycled monofilament.That is Keith holding it and next to him is one of our recycle bins.

Berkley Conservation Institute was founded to respect the outdoors and foster a passion for fishing. The ‘Fish Hab’ is made for fresh water and research has shown that in many places the fish populations increased four times with its use.
