    Virtual Gundalow Gatherings

    “Faka’apa’apa” with Blue Latitudes

    Nominated as an official selection for the International Ocean Film Festival

    Travel virtually with us to Vava’u, Tonga.
    Vava‘u is the island group comprising one large island and 40 smaller ones in the Kingdom of Tonga. In the years since Tonga banned whale hunting, an important piece of the local economy has become swimming with whales. But will this new form of ecotourism be sustainable? Join us to watch the documentary film, “Faka’apa’apa,” by Blue Latitudes Foundation, and then chat with the nonprofit group’s researchers Emily Hazelwood and Amber Sparks.
    Reserve Your Spot for Feb 25th
    More Virtual Gundalow Gatherings and Science Cafes to come!

    March 25 – Water Over the Dam: resolving conflicts between beavers and human communities
    Speakers: Patrick Tate, Jim O’Brien, Matthew Tarr
    Beavers create dams to raise water levels so they can build their homes in the water. Humans are one of the biggest threats to beavers. Trapping, water pollution, and habitat loss through drainage of wetlands are common occurrences that negatively affect beaver populations. The
    New Hampshire Fish and Game Department manages beavers in the state and attempts to maintain populations wherever the animal's presence is beneficial.
