In this interactive “Office Hour” chat, three experts on marine mammal
entanglement and disentanglement will take your questions:

*  Scott Landry is director of the Marine Animal Entanglement Response team
at the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies in Massachusetts. Over the
past 30 years, the Center has freed more than 100 large whales from
life-threatening entanglements, as well as dozens of smaller cetaceans,
seals, and other marine animals.

* Lauri Jemison is a biologist who has studied pinnipeds in Alaska for the
past 25 years, and worked since 1997 with the Alaska Department of Fish &
Game’s Marine Mammal Program. She has studied sea lion entanglement in
marine debris and ingestion of fishing gear for the past decade. Packing
bands, used in the shipping and fishing industries, and large rubber bands,
used for many purposes including holding crab pots closed, are two of the
most common neck-entangling materials.

*  Sue Goodglick is a biologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and
Game’s Steller sea lion research program and member of the multi-agency
Pinniped Entanglement Group. As part of her job, she helps develop and
disseminate outreach materials for the group's “Lose the Loop!” campaign,
an effort to help reduce animal entanglements in marine debris.

*About the Office Hour format:*

This Office Hour will take place at www.marinedebris.info, the
knowledge-sharing forum for marine debris researchers, managers, and
activists. The event will be a live interactive chat conducted by typing
and reading text - there is no audio component.

Office Hour chats provide an opportunity for audience members to ask
questions to our guests; audience members may also share their own
experiences and insights with the guests and other participants. All
participants are able (and encouraged) to post, and all participants are
able to view all posts. Inappropriate or off-topic content will be
controlled.

You do not need to be logged into the MarineDebris.Info site to participate
in the chat, but you are encouraged to create a user account and log in so
you do not need to type your name in every post.
