The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster will present present Seabirds of Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary as part of NOAA’s Children’s Sanctuary educational outreach program Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at 1pm.

Did you know that Cape Cod and our national marine sanctuary are famous for seabirds?! These athletic animals spend much of their lives in the ocean and have developed some extreme survival strategies – some fly tens of thousands of miles a year, plunge dive at 60 miles an hour, or spin in circles to whirlpool food to the water’s surface.  Birders love to watch them and researchers love to study them because they give us clues to the health of the ocean. 

Come to the Museum and eat like a seabird, build a bird with your own extreme adaptations, discover what your wing span is, and follow a satellite-tagged Shearwater on an 18,000 mile trip.  You will leave with a new appreciation for these important animals and be ready to identify some that we can see on Cape Cod every day.

Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary is famous for its whales and fish and also its seabirds. Stellwagen Bank   has developed educational and outreach programs to promote awareness, understanding and protection of these important animals.

Free with Museum Admission.
