Spotlight Project

Right Whale Early Warning System
Right Whale Early Warning
System (EWS), FL/GA
The Navy, Coast Guard and Army Corps of Engineers joined in the effort to spot and track the Northern Right Whale during its annual calving season off Georgia and northern Florida. During over flights of the area, military personnel use marine radio to report the location of whales. As a result, ship captains can maintain efficient speeds into and out of ports with the confidence that they can avoid collisions with whales. Learn more about this project.

Learning Centers (CELCs)

In 1996 the Coastal America Partnership established a network of Coastal Ecosystem Learning Centers. The network combines the resources of federal agencies with marine educational centers. Most Learning Centers are aquariums, but marine science centers and even a fishing museum are part of this network!
