Staten Island Whales

Staten Island’s own marine mammal research organization, Gotham Whale, is continuously collecting data on sightings of seals, dolphins, and whales that are returning to the waters around New York City. Each documented sighting is recorded in their database and collected into anecdotal reports, which they turn into real data that can be used to better understand where and when these animals are appearing.

The National Lighthouse Museum in association with the Creative Photographers Guild presented The First National Juried Photography Show “Lighthouse Stories & Tales of the Sea” opening on Saturday.
