‘Ghost Gear, Ocean Plastic and the Death of Marine Wildlife’

Over the past four years, Elizabeth Hogan has researched the impact of derelict fishing gear on marine mammals and worked on establishing rescue networks and protocols for entangled marine life. In the concluding event of the University of Redlands Human-Animal Lecture Series for 2016, Hogan, who is the program manager for oceans and wildlife with World Animal Protection, will talk about her research and more at “Ghost Gear, Ocean Plastic and the Death of Marine Wildlife” at 7 p.m., Nov. 30 at the Casa Loma Room on the University of Redlands campus. The event is free and open to the public.

            Hogan specializes in marine wildlife entanglement in addition to work on marine debris, illegal wildlife trade, whaling policy and wildlife in captivity. She previously worked with the International Fund for Animal Welfare on protective policies and fishing gear modification for the conservation of North Atlantic Right Whales.
